Πρόλογος απ΄την “Επιστροφή του Οδυσσέα Στην Πατρίδα”, του πατέρα της Όπερας Κλάουντιο Μοντεβέρντι. Στην εκδοχή του Harnoncourt.

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!
