Τρίτος επιφανής Ρώσος ύστερο-ρομαντικός, μετά τους Scriabin, Rachmaninoff, ο Nikolai Medtner. Το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της μουσικής του έχει ως βάση το πιάνο – όργανο του οποίου ήταν ο ίδιος βιρτουόζος.
Ακούμε το τέταρτο μέρος, Finale, Allegro Risoluto της Σονάτας του σε Φα ελάσσονα, op. 5. Από τον Geoffrey Tozer.

Our third illustrious Russian late-romantic, after Scriabin, Rachmaninoff, is Nikolai Medtner.
Most of his music is based on the piano – an instrument of which he was himself a virtuoso.
We hear the fourth part, Finale, Allegro Risoluto of his Sonata in Fa minor, op. 5.
Performed by Geoffrey Tozer.


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!
