Vers La Flamme” [“Προς τη Φλόγα”]. Το έργο με το οποίο ο ακραία εκκεντρικός Ρώσος συνθέτης αναδεικνύεται σε προφήτη της Κλιματικής Αλλαγής. Αφορά στο προαίσθημα που είχε προς το τέλος της ζωής του, ότι η συσσώρευση θερμότητας θα οδηγήσει τον πλανήτη σε ένα καταστροφικό τέλος.
Στο πιάνο ο μεγάλος Sviatoslav Richter.

Vers La Flamme” [“Towards The Flame”] is a work in which the extreme eccentric Russian composer emerges as a prophet of Climate Change. It’ s about a premonition he had during the last years of his life, that a constant accumulation of heat would lead the planet to a destructive end.
The great Sviatoslav Richter is on the piano.

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!
