Στο μεθυστικό μεταίχμιο ανάμεσα στον ρομαντισμό και τον ιμπρεσιονισμό, η φωνή του Gabriel Fauré είναι από τις πιο αναγνωρίσιμες στο τέλος του 19ου – αρχές 20ου αιώνα. Η υπέροχη αυτή μελωδία είναι ένα μικρό δείγμα της τέχης του. Την ακούμε στην εκδοχή της για τσέλο και πιάνο, από τους Steven Isserlis [c], Pascal Devoyon [p].

On the intoxicating verge between romance and Impressionism, Gabriel Fauré’s voice is one of the most recognizable in the late 19th – early 20th centuries. This fine melody is a little token of his art. We hear it in its cello and piano version, performed by Steven Isserlis [c] and Pascal Devoyon [p].


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!
