Painting: “The Colossus” by Francisco de Goya

Εξαιρετικά αφιερωμένο στην αποκρουστική μαριονέτα – “πρωθυπουργό της χώρας” και την κουστωδία του. Με τις καλύτερες ευχές μου [και αυτές συνήθως, πιάνουν].
Ο διασημότερος απ’ τους Πλανήτες του Χολστ, σε εκτέλεση αναφοράς.

Especially devoted to the repulsive puppet – “prime minister of the country” and his entourage. Best wishes [mine are usually fulfilled].
Here’s the most famous of Holst’s Planets, in reference performance.


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 !

* 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!
