Ένα “διαφορετικό” απ’ τα άλλα Requiem, είναι αυτό του κορυφαίου Krzysztof Penderecki – R.I.P.. Ακολουθεί το τυπικό της Καθολικής Λειτουργίας, αλλά τα μέρη του είναι αφιερωμένα σε ιστορικές στιγμές και φυσιογνωμίες της πατρίδας του συνθέτη. Ακούμε το Chaconne, από τη Εθνική Φιλαρμονική Ορχήστρα της Βαρσοβίας, διευθύνει ο Antοni Wit. Το μέρος ειναι αφιερωμένο στη μνήμη του Πάπα Ιωάννη Παύλου ΙΙ.

A “different” Requiem, is this one by the leading Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki – R.I.P.. It follows the standard of Catholic Liturgy, but its parts are dedicated to historical moments and figures of the composer’s homeland. We hear Chaconne, performed by the National Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Antoni Wit. The part is dedicated to the memory of Pope John Paul II.

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!

  1. I didn’t know he was still alive! Then I didn’t know he died last month! I loved Penderecki’s music ever since I was mesmerised by Threnos while at university. A brilliant, brilliant man ❤
