Ανήμερα του “Αη Γιάννη του Αποκεφαλιστή” [έτσι τον έλεγε μια γριούλα στο χωριό της μάνας μου] ακούμε τον εκστατικό Χορό Των Επτά Πέπλων από την όπερα Σαλώμη του Ρίχαρντ Στράους [πρεμιέρα, Δρέσδη, 1905], στην εκδοχή του Georg Solti με την Φιλαρμονική της Βιένης. Brigit Nilsson – Σαλώμη, Gerhard Stolze – Ηρώδης, Eberhard Wächter – Ιωάννης.

We hear the ecstatic Dance Of The Seven Veils from the opera Salome by Richard Strauss [premiered in Dresden, 1905], in Georg Solti’ s version with the Vienna Philharmonic. Brigit Nilsson – Salome, Gerhard Stolze – Herod, Eberhard Wächter – Jokanaan.


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!
