Ευχές για μια όμορφη χρονιά, γεμάτη ευεξία, ισορροπία και δημιουργικότητα.
Ας την ξεκινήσουμε όσο πιο ‘θριαμβευτικά’ γίνεται.
Δύσκολα γίνεται πιστευτό ακούγοντάς τα, αλλά ο Frédéric Chopin [φωτό, 1849], έγραψε αυτά τα κομμάτια για εκπαιδευτικούς σκοπούς, για την βελτίωση της τεχνικής του σολίστα.
Οι Σπουδές του αποτελούν έκτοτε ένα από τα σημαντικότερα έργα της πιανιστικής φιλολογίας. Ακούμε 5 από την πρώτη δωδεκάδα, έργο 10.
Στην απαράμιλλη εκδοχή του Maurizio Pollini.

Best wishes for a beautiful year, full of well-being, balance and creativity.
Let’s start it in the most ‘triumphant’ way possible.
Unbelievable as it may seem hearing them, Frédéric Chopin [photo, 1949] wrote these pieces for educational purpose, in terms of improving the soloist’s technique.
Since then, his Studies are considered among the most important works written for piano. We hear 5 from the first 12 of them, op. 10.
In the unparalleled version of Maurizio Pollini.

* 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!
