Ένα άλλο είδος …hi energy music. Από το μεγαλύτερο συνθέτη του 20ου αιώνα, Sergei Prokofiev και το συγκλονιστικό soundtrack που έγραψε για την ταινία του Eisenstein “Ιβάν ο Τρομερός” [1944]. Ακούμε δύο αποσπάσματα. Ο Valery Gergiev διευθύνει τη Φιλαρμονική του Ρότερνταμ και την χορωδία της Ορχήστρας του Κίροφ.

Another kind of …hi energy music. From the greatest composer of the 20th century, Sergei Prokofiev and his spellbinding soundtrack for Eisenstein’s film “Ivan The Terrible” [1944].
Here’s two excerpts from it. The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chorus of the Kirov Orchestra are conducted by Valery Gergiev.

* 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!
