Ο ζόφος δεν αποτελεί “προνόμιο” της σύγχρονης μουσικής, ούτε καν εκείνης της εποχής του ρομαντισμού. Ιδού ο Christoph Willibald Gluck [1714-1787], προαναγγέλλων μεταξύ άλλων τον …Μότσαρτ, στο ζοφερότατο Χορό των Ερινύων από την μεγαλειώδη όπερά του Ορφέας και Ευριδίκη. Ο Leopold Hager διευθύνει τη Munich Radio Orchestra.

Gloom is not a “privilege” of contemporary music, not even of the one of the romantic period. Here‘s Christoph Willibald Gluck [1714-1787], anticipating …Mozart, among other things, in the gloomy Dance of the Furies from his magnificent opera Orpheus and Eurydice. Leopold Hager conducts the Munich Radio Orchestra.


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!
