Στο κλαμπ των μουσικών γεννημένων τον μήνα Φεβρουάριο και ο Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Αμερικανός, γεννημένος στη Ρωσία από εβραϊκή οικογένεια. Όχι ονομαστός συνθέτης, λόγω του μικρού αριθμού των έργων του [αξιόλογων ωστόσο] διακρίθηκε ως μαέστρος και σολίστ του πιάνου, δίνοντας ταυτόχρονα ρεσιτάλ με τη σύζυγό του σοπράνο Clara Clemens, κόρη του Μark Τwain.
Ακούμε εδώ την Σπουδή για Αριστερό Χέρι, από το Two Piano Pieces, op. 12. Ερμηνεύει ο Andrey Cugnin.

Another member of the musicians-born-in-Febraury club : Ossip Gabrilowitsch was an American, born in Russia to a Jewish family. Not a renowned composer, due to the little number of his works [notable ones however] he made a successful career as a conductor and piano soloist, giving also recitals with his soprano wife Clara Clemens, Mark Twain’ s daughter.
We hear his Study for Left Hand, from Two Piano Pieces, op. 12.
Performed by Andrey Cugnin.


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!
