Ο Gioacchino Rossini [1792-1868] είναι από τα μεγαλύτερα οπερατικά brand names, η προσωπική μου όμως προτίμηση απ’ τα έργα του είναι το Stabat Mater, το θρησκευτικό έργο του οποίου το εναρκτήριο μέρος ακούμε.
Catherine Maltifano – σοπράνο, Agnes Baltsa [φωτό] – mezzo, II, Robert Gambill – τενόρος, Gwynne Howell – μπάσος

Gioacchino Rossini [1792-1868] is one of the biggest operatic brand names, but my personal preference among his works is Stabat Mater, a sacred work from which we select the opening section.

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!
