Σαν σήμερα, 25 Μαρτίου 1881 γεννήθηκε ο Ούγγρος συνθέτης Béla Bartók, από τους σημαντικότερους του 20ου αιώνα. Με εντυπωσιακές επιδόσεις ως παιδί-θαύμα, επηρεασμένος από συνθέτες όπως ο Brahms, ο Debussy, ο Richard Strauss και ο Stravinsky, θα διαμορφώσει ένα ιδιαίτερα προσωπικό ιδίωμα. Ταυτόχρονα, οι εκετεταμένες έρευνές του πάνω στην παραδοσιακή μυσκή της Ουγγαρίας και άλλων χωρών, θα του εξασφαλίσουν τον τίτλο του πατέρα της εθνομουσικολογίας. Ακούμε το πρώτο κονσέρτο για βιολί. Τα μέρη: Andante Sostenuto, Allegro Giocoso. Σολίστ η Kyung-Wha Chung, την LSO διευθύνει ο Georg Solti.
On this date, March 25, 1888, the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók was born, one of the greatest of the 20th century. Having shown impressive skills as a child prodigy, he would form a highly distinguishable idiom, influenced by composers such as Brahms, Debussy, Richard Strauss and Stravinsky. At the same time, his expansive research on the music tradition of Hungary and other countries, would secure him the title of father of ethnomusicology. We hear the Violin Concerto No1. The parts: Andante Sostenuto, Allegro Giocoso. Soloist: Kyung-Wha Chung, the LSO is conducted by Georg Solti.

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.
