Το αριστούργημα του Giovanni Battista Pergolesi έχει 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
The Choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge, The Argo Chamber Orchestra, David Hill – organ.
Conducted by George Guest

* 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!
