Το αριστούργημα του Giovanni Battista Pergolesiέχει μια ιστορία παρόμοια τραγική με το Requiem του Mozart: ο Ιταλός συνθέτης έγραψε το έργο, ενώ νοσηλευόταν για φυματίωση στο Φραγκισκανικό μοναστήρι του Pozzuoli. Ολοκλήρωσε την παρτιτούρα στιγμές πριν πεθάνει, σε ηλικία 26 χρόνων.
Ακούμε εκτεταμένο μέρος του έργου.

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi‘s masterpiece has a story similarly tragic to Mozart’s Requiem: the Italian composer wrote the work while being hospitalized for tuberculosis at the Franciscan monastery of Pozzuoli. He completed the score moments before he died, at the age of 26.
We hear an extensive part of the work.

Felicity Palmer – soprano
Alfreda Hodgson – contralto

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!
