About this Recording

MARKOPOULOS, Y.: Shapes in Motion / Pyrrichios Dance No. 13, "Nemesis" / Concerto-Rhapsody / Triptych (Grauwels, Spyridakis, Papatheodorou, Tilkin)

To honour the most representative instrument of his native Crete, Yannis Markopoulos composed his melodious Concerto-Rhapsody for Lyre in which the exotic solo instrument and orchestra display an engaging, symbiotic relationship. His Triptych awakens the listener’s imagination with the contrasting sonorities of flute, harp and strings, while Shapes in Motion establishes from primordial ideas a harmonious balance between solo piano and orchestra. The shorter works showcase his graceful musicality, love of ancient myths and concern for the environment.
