Οι Frédéric Chopin, J. S Bach και J. Haydn, είναι οι κεντρικές φιγούρες του March born musicians club – ως εκ τούτου απαιτείται ιδιαίτερη μεταχείριση και περισσότερα του ενός ποστ για τον καθένα.
Στο πρώτο έργο εδώ, η φαντασία του μεγάλου Πολωνού φαίνεται να αγγίζει τον ιμπρεσιονισμό [και την jazz] πολλές δεκαετίες πριν. Δεν είναι τυχαίο αυτό που είχε πει ο Debussy γι’ αυτόν : “ο Chopin είναι ο μεγαλύτερος απ’ όλους, γιατί μέσα από το πιάνο αποκλειστικά ανακάλυψε τα πάντα”.
Σολίστ ο Artur Rubinstein.

Frédéric Chopin, J. S Bach and J. Haydn, are central figures in the March born musicians club, therefore a special treatment is required, and more than a post for every one.
On the first work here, the great Pole’s imagination seems to touch on impressionism [and jazz] several decades ahead. What Debussy said about him is no coincidence: “Chopin is the greatest of all, for with the piano alone he discovered everything”.
Artur Rubinstein is the soloist.

* 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!
