Σαν σήμερα, 3 Μαρτίου 1891, γενήθηκε ο Federico Moreno Torroba, ένας από τους αξιοσημείωτους συνθέτες έργων για κλασική κιθάρα του εικοστού αιώνα. Πέρα από αυτά έγραψε αρκετές zarzuaelas [είδος ισπανικής ελαφριάς όπερας], μπαλέτα, συμφωνικά έργα και μουσική για πιάνο. Από τον David Russell ακούμε την σουίτα του για κλασική κιθάρα Aires De La Mancha που ο συνθέτης έγραψε προς τιμή του φίλου του, Andrés Segovia.

On this date, March 3, 1891, Federico Moreno Torroba, a remarkable composer of works for classical guitar was born. In addition to them, he wrote several zarzuaelas [kind of Spanish light opera], ballets, symphonic works and piano music. From David Russell we hear his guitar suite Aires De La Mancha. The composer wrote this in honor of his friend, Andrés Segovia.

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!
