H Συμφωνία Νο 2 του Ρώσου συνθέτη Alfred Schnittke γράφτηκε για τέσσερις φωνές [κοντράλτο, κόντρα τενόρο, τενόρο και μπάσο], ορχήστρα και χορωδία. Είναι βασισμένη στο τυπικό της Καθολικής Λειτουργίας. Ακούμε το 3ο μέρος της, Credo.
Τη Συμφωνική Ορχήστρα του Λένινγκραντ διευθύνει ο Gennadi Rozhdestvensky.

Russian composer Alfred Schnittke’s Symphony No. 2 is written for four voices [contralto, countertenor, tenor and bass], orchestra and choir. It is based on the ordinary of the Catholic Liturgy. We hear its 3rd part, Credo.
The Leningrad Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Gennadi Rozhdestvensky.


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!
