Σαν σήμερα, 22 Μαρτίου 1948 γεννήθηκε ο Andrew Lloyd Webber, ένας από τους πιο επιτυχημένους συνθέτες των τελευταίων 50 χρόνων. Από την τεράστια παραγωγή του, διαλέγουμε ένα έργο που αναδεικνύει τις ικανότητες του σε ένα ιδίωμα με απαιτήσεις πολύ μεγαλύτερες από αυτές ενός musical. Ο Webber έγραψε το Requiem στα μέσα της δεκατίας του ’80 αφιερώνοντάς το στη μνήμη του πατέρα του. Ακούμε: Requiem & Kyrie, Recordare, Offertorium.

On this date, 22 March 1948, Andrew Lloyd Webber, one of the most prominent composers of the last 50 years was born. From his enormous production we chose a work presenting him as a fully accomplished artist, in a form much more demanding than the musical. Webber wrote the Requiem in the middle ’80s, in memory of his recently deceased father. The parts we pick: Requiem & Kyrie, Recordare, Offertorium.

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!
