from Oannes *
Ο Johannes Brahms υπήρξε, εκτός άλλων, ο μεγαλύτερος πολυφωνιστής της εποχής του [μέσα – τέλη 19ου αι.]. Αυτό φαίνεται κυρίως στα θρησκευτικά του μοτέτα – από τις λιγότερο γνωστές πτυχές του δημιουργικού του έργου. Ακούμε δυο απ΄ αυτά, από τους Corydon Singers υπό τη διεύθυνση του Matthew Best.
Johannes Brahms was, among other things, the greatest contrapuntalist of his time [mid- late 19th century]. This shows more than anywhere in his religious motets – from the lesser-known aspects of his creative work. We hear two of them performed by the Corydon Singer. Direction: Matthew Best.

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!
