Το πρώτο από τα σχόλια που διαβάζεις κάτω από την εκτέλεση του αριστουργήματος του Schubert, είναι το εξής :
“In my humble view this movement is the most sublime piece of music ever written”
Ακούγεται απλοϊκό στην υπερβολή του, είναι όμως μια υπερβολή που “συγχωρείς” ολόψυχα, ξέροντας το κομμάτι για το οποίο μιλάει. Και ακούγοντάς το ξανά από το πολωνέζικο Camerata Quartet [με την προσθήκη της Marta Kordykiewicz – δεύτερο τσέλο]

The first comment you read under the performance of Schubert’s masterpiece, is the following:
“In my humble view this movement is the most sublime piece of music ever written”
It sounds simplistic in its exaggeration, but it is an exaggeration that you “forgive” wholeheartedly, knowing the piece he is talking about. And hearing it again from the Polish Camerata Quartet [with the addition of Marta Kordykiewicz – second cello]

Enjoy!


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!
