HADJIDAKIS, M.: Piano Works (D. Kara) - For a Little White Seashell / Rhythmology / 6 Popular Pictures / Ionian Suite

The piano music of Manos Hadjidakis, best known outside Greece for his popular song Never on Sunday, is as unique as the myriad influences which nourish it, reflecting the wide-ranging interests of this popular Greek composer. The suite For A White Little Seashell comprises five preludes followed by traditional Greek dances, while the Six Popular Pictures are arrangements of rebetika songs that share a feeling of nostalgia. The intimate and playful character of his Ionian Suite complements the solemn dignity of Rhythmology, whose unusual rhythms derive from traditional melodic patterns. Trained at the Juilliard School, awardwinning Greek virtuoso Danae Kara here makes her Naxos début.
