Πίσω στο Malevolent Project. Από την πατρίδα του black metal, ακούμε την Norwegian Chamber Orchestra στην Συμφωνία Δωματίου σε Ντο Ελάσσονα, Op. 119a του Shostakovitch. Προκειται για μεταγραφή για ορχήστρα εγχόρδων του κουαρτέτου Νο 8 από τον Rudolf Barshai.
Μια από τις σπάνιες περιπτώσεις που προτιμώ βίντεο από mp3, είναι όταν υποπίπτει στην αντίληψή μου μια εκτέλεση όπως αυτή : υπεράνω περιγραφής, συνεπικουρούντος του ήχου.

Back to the Malevolent Project. From the country of black metal’s origin, we hear the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra in Shostakovitch’s Chamber Symphony in C minor, Op. 110a. It is a transcription for strings orchestra of the No. 8 quartet by Rudolf Barshai.
One of the rear occasions on which I prefer video to mp3, is when I discover a performance like this : beyond description, sound quality included.


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!
