Μένοντας στις Εθνικές Σχολές και τους μουσικούς του Μάρτη, περνάμε στον Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov [1844-1908], μέλος της ομάδας των Πέντε [Balakirev, Cui, Mussorgsky, Korsakov, Borodin] σημαντικός συνθέτης, κορυφαίος ενορχηστρωτής και δάσκαλος, με έργο που περιλαμβάνει κυρίως συμφωνικές συνθέσεις, όπερες, τραγούδια και μουσική δωματίου.
Ακούμε ένα απ΄τα μέρη της συμφωνικής του σουίτας Sheherazade, βασισμένης στις Χίλιες Και Μια Νύχτες : The Story Of The Calendar Prince. Ο Lorin Maazel διευθύνει τη Φιλαρμονική του Βερολίνου.

Keeping in touch with in the National Schools and the musicians of March, we go to Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov [1844-1908], a member of the group The Five [Balakirev, Cui, Mussorgsky, Korsakov, Borodin] an important composer, leading arranger and teacher, whose work includes mainly symphonic compositions, operas, songs and chamber music.
We hear a part of his symphonic suite Sheherazade, based on A Thousand and One Nights : The Story Of The Calendar Prince. Lorin Maazel is conducting the Berliner 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!
