Εκεί όπου η υπερβατική δεξιοτεχνία υπηρετεί τη μουσική έκφραση, ο mastermind της κιθάρας μετατρέπει το ‘Eleanor Rigby’ σε “αφορμή” για ένα 7λεπτο ρεσιτάλ, απ’ το οποίο δεν πετάς ούτε νότα. Όλα όσα ακούγονται εδώ [με την εξαίρεση σποραδικών κρουστών] προέρχονται από τα δάχτυλά του – χωρίς overdubs.

Where transcendental virtuosity serves musical expression, the guitar mastermind turns ‘Eleanor Rigby’ into an “excuse” for a 7-minute recital, from which you don’t throw away a single note. Everything that’s been heard [with the exception of sporadic percussion] comes out of his fingers – without overdubs.


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!
