Σαν βάση για την Έβδομη Συμφωνία του ο Βρετανός συνθέτης χρησιμοποίησε υλικό επανεπεξεργασμένο από το επικό του soundtrack για το φιλμ ‘Scott of The Antarctic’ [1948, σκην. Charles Frend, πρωτ. John Mills] Η ταινία αναφερόταν στην εξερευνητική αποστολή του πλοιάρχου Scott στην Ανταρκτική το 1912.
Ακούμε το πρώτο μέρος της Sinfonia Antarctica, Prelude, Andante Maestoso. Ο sir Adrian Boult διευθύνει τη Φιλαρμονική του Λονδίνου.

As the basis for his Seventh Symphony, the British composer used reworked material from his epic soundtrack for the film ‘Scott of The Antarctic’ [1948, dir. Charles Frend, prot. John Mills] The film was about captain Scott’s exploratory expedition to Antarctica in 1912.
We hear the first part of Sinfonia Antarctica, Prelude, Andante Maestoso. Sir Adrian Boult is conducting the London Philharmonic.


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!
