Δίπλα στις disco γελοιογραφίες “κλασικής” με τις οποίες έγινε διάσημη, η Vanessa Mae διατήρησε την ικανότητα να παίζει αληθινή μουσική. Ακούμε δική της, άγνωστη σχετικά διασκευή του έργου που, σύμφωνα με τον συνθέτη του, Giuseppe Tartini, του υπαγορεύτηκε σε όνειρο από τον …Διάβολο αυτοπροσώπως.
Πέρα από το βιολί της VM, είναι το εκκλησιαστικό όργανο που “γράφει” ως εύρημα.

Next to the “classical” disco caricatures that made her famous, Vanessa Mae maintained her ability to play real music. We hear it in her own, rare adaptation of the work which, according to its composer, Giuseppe Tartini, was dictated in a dream by …the Devil himself. Apart from the violin, it is the church organ that sets the mood here.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
