Ο Athur Lourie υπήρξε από τις δεσπόζουσες φιγούρες της σοβιετικής μουσικής τα πρώτα χρόνια μετά την Επανάσταση, πέφτοντας σε δυσμένεια και ακολουθώντας το δρόμο της εξορίας το 1922.
Εγκαταστάθηκε στο Παρίσι, όπου συνδέθηκε με φιλία με τον Igor Stravinsky και, μετά την κατάληψη της πόλης από τους Γερμανούς, στην Νέα Υόρκη. Ο Arthur Lourie έγραψε μουσική δωματίου, φωνητικά έργα, και κυρίως μουσική για πιάνο.
Ακούμε ένα μέρος, Aria, Lento Ma Non Troppo από το Κονσέρτο Δωματίου για βιολί & Ορχήστρα Δωματίου. Ερμηνεύει ο Gidon Kremer και η Ορχήστρα Δωματίου της Λιθουανίας υπό τον Saulius Sondetskis.

Athur Lourie was one of the prominent figures of Soviet during the first years after the Revolution. He fell into disfavor and followed the path of exile in 1922.
He settled in Paris, where he was associated with friendship with Igor Stravinsky and, after the German occupation of the city, in New York.
Arthur Lourie wrote chamber music, vocal works and, mainly, music for piano.
We hear Aria, Lento Ma Non Troppo from his Concerto Da Camera For Violin & Chamber Orchestra. Perfomred by Gidon Kremer and the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Saulius Sondetskis.

* 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!
