Fra 1 settimana!


In a week, at about this hour, Rolando's recital in Athens will be over.

I don't know if he's going to sing us any Greek songs but what I know is that I will have a huge smile on my face...

Instead of a countdown, during the 7 days left till the Recital, I will be uploading 1 video everyday. 7 videos of Rolando Villazón in New York, singing Greek music...And Granada at the end as an encore...

Let's begin with...

"Me tin proti stagona tis vrohis"



Music: Manos Hadjidakis


Poetry: Odysseas Elytis (1979 Nobel Prize in Literature)

Download HERE the complete program of the performance "Greece: Poetry in music" with full details on the composers and the poets and translation of all the songs that I will be uploading.

Nice preparation ;-) In spite of the distorsions ;-)) i still like how his voice plies nicely over the long lines, it captures his tone at best. Happy waiting ;-)

mostly opera... said...

Parsifal - I just cannot resist the temptation to make you nervous (malicious grin inserted): RV cancelled his Lenski in Berlin yesterday due to a throat infection...
Apparently he appeared before he audience to excuse himself and didn´t look like he would be sick for more than a couple of days, according to friends present in Belin.
