Μπορεί η μουσική για τον Αλέξανδρο Νέφσκι να είναι το πιο διάσημο σάουντρακ του Προκόφιεφ, δεν ήταν όμως το πρώτο του. Ο τίτλος ανήκει στη μουσική για το, επίσης σοβιετικό φιλμ, “Υπολοχαγός Κιγιέ” του 1934. Αμέσως μετά την προβολή του, η σουίτα “ανεξαρτητοποιήθηκε” και αποτελεί έκτοτε μέρος του στάνταρ ορχηστρικού ρεπερτορίου. Ακούμε το δεύτερο μέρος: Romance

The music for Alexander Nevsky may be his most famous, but it was not the first soundtrack for Prokofiev. The title belongs to his music for the 1934 Soviet film Lieutenant Kije. Immediately after its launch, the suite “became independent” and has since been part of the standard orchestral repertoire. We hear the second part: Romance

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!
