Δίπλα στην κωμικοτραγωδία της “K-Pop” η Ν. Κορέα επιχειρεί να δώσει στίγμα στον παγκόσμιο μουσικό χάρτη με καλλιτέχνες όπως ο πιανίστας – οργανίστας Jae-Hyuck Cho, που ακούμε στο Allegro Ma non Tanto από το Τρίτο του Ραχμάνινοφ.
Όχι φυσικά “ερμηνεία αναφοράς” του έργου [μιλάμε για ωκεανό ηχογραφήσεων] αλλά με στιγμές που αναμείβουν. Το concept υπάγεται στις multi-culti προδιαγραφές της εποχής : την Russian National Orchestra διευθύνει ο [Αυστριακός] Hans Graf.

Next to “K-Pop”‘s tragicomedy, S. Korea attempts to make a mark on the world music map with artists such as the pianist – organist Jae-Hyuck Cho, whom we hear performing the Allegro Ma non Tanto from Rachmaninov’s Third.
Not a “reference interpretation” of the work of course [there’s an ocean of recordings here] but with rewarding moments. The concept falls under the multi-culti specifications of the time: the Russian National Orchestra is conducted by [Austrian] Hans Graf.


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!
