Η 7η Συμφωνία του Krzysztof Penderecki – επρόκειτο αρχικά να έχει τη μορφή ορατόριου – γράφτηκε το 1996 για τον εορτασμό της τρίτης χιλετηρίδας της Ιερουσαλήμ.
Ακούμε το πρώτο από τα επτά της μέρη : Magnus Dominus et laudabilis nimis in civitate – βασισμένο στον Ψαλμό 48.

Krzysztof Penderecki’s 7th Symphony – originally conceived as an oratorio – was written in 1996 for the celebration of Jerusalem’s third millennium.
We hear the first of its seven parts : Magnus Dominus et laudabilis nimis in civitate – after Psalm 48.


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!
