Η Ολονύκτια Αγρυπνία του Σεργκέι Ραχμάνινοφ θεωρείται όχι μόνο μια από τις σημαντικότερες συνθέσεις του [άποψη που συμμεριζόταν ο ίδιος] αλλά και το απόγειο της Ορθόδοξης μουσικής παράδοσης.
Ακούμε τρία αποσπάσματα του έργου.

Sergei Rachmaninoff’s All – Night Vigil is considered not only one of his most important compositions [an opinion shared by the artist] but also the apogee of the Orthodox musical tradition.
We hear three excerpts from it.


00:00 Ave Maria 02:49 The Six Psalms 04:55 Blessed Art Thou, O Lord


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!
