Το πιο διάσημο από τα Concerti Grossi του Arcangelo Corelli, έργα κεφαλαιώδη για την εξέλιξη της μουσικής για έγχορδα, είναι το op. 6 No 8, στην παρτιτούρα του οποίου ο συνθέτης έχει σημειώσει : “fatto per la notte di natale” [“φτιαγμένο για τη βραδιά των Χροστουγέννων”]
Το ακούμε από την Südwesrdeutches Kammerorchester υπό την διεύθυνση του Gunter Wich.
Στο ξεκίνημα του πρώτου μέρους κάποιοι θα αναγνωρίσουν την εναλλαγή συγχορδιών στην οποία “βασίσθηκε” ηλεκτρονικό χιτ των late ‘90s [βλ. βίντεο, κάτω]

The most well known of Arcangelo Corelli’s Concerti Grossi, a collection of woks essential in the evolution of strings music, is op. 6 No 8, the one that bears the inscription : “fatto per la notte di natale” [“made for Christmas night”]
We hear it from Südwesrdeutches Kammerorchester conducted by Gunter Wich.
In the beginning of the first movement, some will recognize the chord progression on which a famous electronic hit of the late ‘90s was “based” [watch video below].





Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
