Ο Gioacchino Rossini είναι από τα μεγαλύτερα οπερατικά brand names, η προσωπική μου όμως προτίμηση απ’ τα έργα του είναι το Stabat Mater, το θρησκευτικό έργο του οποίου το εναρκτήριο μέρος ακούμε, τιμώντας την ημέρα της γέννησης του, 29 Φεβρουαρίου 1792.

Gioacchino Rossini may be one of the biggest operatic brand names, but my personal preference among his works is Stabat Mater, a religious work from which we listen to the starting section, commemorating the day of his birth, February 29, 1792.

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!
