Κατά ένα περίεργο τρόπο, ο Igor Stravinsky επιλέγει για πρώτη φορά να χρησιμοποιήσει την δωδεκάφθογγη μέθοδο σύνθεσης του Arnold Schoenberg [οι δύο τους είχαν ιδιαίτερα ψυχρές σχέσεις] αμέσως μετά το θάνατο του Γερμανού συνθέτη, το 1951. Ξεκινώντας μάλιστα με τους Θρήνους του Ιερεμία, των οποίων ένα μέρος [De Elegia Prima] ακούμε εδώ.
Τα μέλη της Columbia Symphony Orchestra και τη χορωδία Schola Cantorum διευθύνει ο ίδιος ο Stravinsky.

In a strange way, Igor Stravinsky choses for the first time to use Arnold Schoenberg’s 12-tone composition method [the two of them had particularly cold relationships] immediately after the German composer’s death in 1951. Starting with the Laments of Jeremiah, of which a part [De Elegia Prima] we hear here.
Members of the Columbia Symphony Orchestra and the Schola Cantorum Choir are conducted by Stravinsky himself.



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!
