Το ημι-ηλεκτρονικό έργο του John Adams από τα middle ‘80s, περιγραφόμενο από τον συνθέτη σαν “Συμφωνία για ορχήστρα χάλκινων πνευστών και συνθεσάιζερς] δεν ανήκει, παραδόξως, στα πιο διάσημά του. Είναι όμως μια απ’ τις προσωπικές μου προτιμήσεις στο χώρο του μίνιμαλ.
Ακούμε το πρώτο μέρος του Light Over Water.

John Adams’ semi-electronic work from the mid-80s, described by the composer as “Symphony for brass orchestra and synthesizers] is not , paradoxically, one his most best – known. But it is one of my favorites in the field of minimal music.
We hear Light Over Water’s first part.


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!
