Μια έξοχη απόδοση [τμημάτων] της Μουσικής των Νερών του Georg Friedrich Handel. Η μουσική, παραγγελία του βασιλιά Γεωργίου, χωρισμένη σε τρεις σουίτες, ακούστηκε για πρώτη φορά το καλοκαίρι του σωτήριου έτους 1717 στα νερά του Τάμεση.
Ακούμε τρία μέρη από την πρώτη σουίτα : Adagio e staccato, Minuet, Hornpipe.
Ο Gerard Schwarz διευθύνει την Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

A brilliant performance of [excerpts from] George Friedrich Handel’s Water Music. The music, a request by King George, divided into three suites, was first heard in the summer of the year 1717 on the waters of the River Thames.
We hear three parts from the first suite : Adagio e staccato, Minuet, Hornpipe.

* 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!
