O Krzysztof Komedaγεννήθηκε σαν σήμερα, 27 Απριλίου 1931. Στη σύντομη διάρκεια της ζωής του [πέθανε από δυστύχημα το 1969…] ο Πολωνός συνθέτης και πιανίστας πρόλαβε να ηχογραφήσει συναρπαστική μουσική. Κυρίως έμεινε γνωστός για τα soundtrack ταινιών του Πολάνσκι: Rosemary’s Baby, Knife In The Water, Fearless Vampire Killers, από τις οποίες ακούμε αποσπάσματα. Ακούμε επίσης ένα κομμάτι από το Astigmatic, το αριστούργημα ευρωπαίκής jazz που κυκλοφόρησε το 1966…

Krzysztof Komeda was born on this date, 27 April 1931. During his short life [he died from accident in 1969…], the Polish composer and pianist managed to record some exciting music. He’s mostly known for the soundtracks he wrote for Polanski‘s films: Rosemary’s Baby, Knife In The Water, Fearless Vampire Killers, from which we hear excerpts. We also hear a track from Astigmatic, the masterpiece of European jazz he released in 1966…

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. A wonderful composition, Marina. Beautiful, love the jazz, but when I think of Rosemary’s Baby, fear creeps into the room. 🙂 I look forward to hearing more from Oannes. Stay safe, my friend. Sending love and hugs. ❤❤
