from Oannes *
Ο Mily Balakirev υπήρξε ηγετική φυσιογνωμία της ρωσικής μουσικής του 19ου αιώνα, συγκεντρώνοντας γύρω του, εμψυχώνοντας και επηρεάζοντας καταλυτικά το στιλ ομοτέχνων του όπως οι [υπόλοιποι] της ομάδας των “5” και ο ίδιος ο Tchaikovsky.
Ακούμε το δεύτερο μέρος, Scherzo : Vivo, της Πρώτης του Συμφωνίας. Ο Evgeni Svetlanov διευθύνει τη Συμφωνική Ορχήστρα της ΕΣΣΔ.
Mily Balakirev was a leading figure of 19th century Russian music, gathering, encouraging and crucially influencing the style of his peers, including the [other members] of The Five, and Tchaikovsky himself.
We hear the second part, Scherzo : Vivo, from his Symphony No 1. The USSR Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Evgeni Svetlanov.
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 music !
* 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!
