Σαν σήμερα, 8 Μαρτίου 1857 γεννήθηκε στη Νάπολη ο συνθέτης Ruggero Leoncavallo. Έγραψε ένα μεγάλο αριθμό από όπερες [μουσική & λιμπρέτο] καμία από τις οποίες δεν πλησίασε σε επιτυχία την πρώτη του “Παλιάτσοι”, την μόνη για την οποία τον θυμάται ο κόσμος μέχρι σήμερα… Από αυτήν ακούμε: Stridono Lassu [Ballatella] με την Μονσερά Καμπαγιέ, Vesti La Giubba με τον Πλάθιντο Ντομίνγκο, και το Intermezzo ανάμεσα στις δυο πράξεις. Την London Symphony Orchestra διευθύνει ο Nello Santi.

On this date, March 8, 1857 the composer Ruggero Leoncavallo was born in Naples. He wrote a large number of operas [music & libretto] none of which came close to the success of his first one “Pagliacci”… It is the only one people remember him for, to this day… From this we hear: Stridono Lassu [Ballatella] with Montserrat Caballé, Vesti La Giubba with Placido Domingo, and the Intermezzo between the two acts. The London Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Nello Santi.

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!
