Ο “Υπολοχαγός Κιγιέ” είναι ιστορία ενός φανταστικού στρατιώτη, δημιουργημένου από τις υπηρεσίες του Τσάρου για την κάλυψη κάποιου “γραφειοκρατικού λάθους”. Η μουσική του Prokofiev για την ομώνυμη ταινία του 1934 ήταν το πρώτο του soundtrack, από ο οποίο ακούμε ένα απόσπασμα.

Lieutenant Kije” is the story of an imaginary soldier, created by the Tsar’s services to cover up some “bureaucratic error”.
Prokofiev’s music for the 1934 film of the same name was his first soundtrack, from which we hear an excerpt.


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!
