Δυο ακόμα όψεις της πολυσχιδούς μουσικής προσωπικότητας του André Previn : η του πιανίστα – παραγωγού άλμπουμ [όχι ακριβώς] “easy listening” jazz, και η του κλασικού περφόρμερ.
Τα δυο πρώτα tracks είναι κυκλοφορίες των ‘60s : κανένα από τα original AP άλμπουμ της εποχής δεν έχει κυκλοφορήσει σε cd, υπάρχει απλώς ένα compilation απ’ αυτά με τίτλο A Touch Of Elegance [άσχετο με το ομότιτλο tribute του στον Duke Ellington].
Στο τρίτο track ακούμε τον André Previn – κλασικό πιανίστα να συμπράττει με τους Feri Roth – βιολί, Joseph Schuster – βιολοντσέλο στο Allegro ma non troppo από το Πιάνο Τρίο σε Ρε ελάσσονα έργο 120, του Φέλιξ Μέντελσον

Two more aspects of André Previn’s multifaceted musical personality: the one of pianist-album producer of [not quite] “easy listening” jazz, and the one of classical performer.
The first two tracks are ’60s releases: none of the original AP albums of the time have been released on CD, there is just a compilation out of them : A Touch Of Elegance [unrelated to his unanimous tribute to Duke Ellington].
On the third track we hear André Previn – classical pianist along with Feri Roth – violin, Joseph Schuster – cello performing Allegro ma non troppo from Piano Trio in D minor op. 120, by Felix Mendelssohn.

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!
