Γεννημένη σε μια εποχή που η καριέρα επαγγελματία συνθέτη ήταν αδιανόητη για γυναίκα, η FM ασχολήθηκε με τη σύνθεση, πιανιστικών κυρίως κομματιών, στο περιθώριο των καθηκόντων της ως “υπάκοης κόρης” αρχικά, μητέρας και συζύγου στη συνέχεια. Ευτύχησε να δει κάποια δημοσιευμένα με την υπογραφή του διάσημου αδελφού της Felix, ο οποίος την αγαπούσε και την υποστήριζε.

Born at a time when the career of a professional composer was unthinkable for a woman, FM was involved in the composition of mainly piano pieces, besides her initial role as an “obedient daughter”, and mother and wife later. She was fortunate to see some of it published under the name of her famous brother Felix, who loved and supported her.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
