Το κονσέρτο για πιάνο και ορχήστρα σε σολ μείζονα είναι μια από τις τελευταίες συνθέσεις του Ραβέλ. Έχει προηγηθεί η επίσκεψή του στις ΗΠΑ και ο επηρεασμός από την jazz και τα spirituals, ευδιάκριτος ειδικά σ’ αυτό, το πρώτο μέρος, που ακούμε από την Martha Argerich και την London Symphony Orchestra υπό τον Claudio Abbado.

Concerto for piano and orchestra in G major is one of Ravel’s last compositions. It has been preceded by his visit to the USA and the influence from jazz and spirituals, especially distinct in this one, the first part, which we hear from Martha Argerich and the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Claudio Abbado.



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!
