“Παραμένοντας επί φινλανδικού εδάφους” ακούμε δυο μέρη από το έργο του Einojuhani Rautavaara για ορχήστρα χάλκινων πνευστών “Sotilasmessu” [A Soldier’s Mass]. Αποδίδει η Finnish Brass Symphony, διευθυνόμενη από τον Hannu Lintu.

“Remaining on Finnish ground” we hear two parts of Einojuhani Rautavaara’s work for the brass orchestra “Sotilasmessu” [A Soldier’s Mass]. It is performed by the Finnish Brass Symphony, conducted by Hannu Lintu.

* 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!
