KALOMIRIS, M.: Rhapsodies Nos. 1 and 2 / Lyrics / Minas the Rebel (Russian State Symphonic Cappella, Karlovy Vary Symphony, Fidetzis)

Manolis Kalomiris is honoured as the father of Greek national music. The inspired orchestration of Kalomiris’s Piano Rhapsody No. 1 by Gabriel Pierné moved Byron Fidetzis to orchestrate the second of these, sub-titled Song of the Night. The versatile soprano Julia Souglakou, whose wide-ranging repertoire includes operas by Greek composers, interprets Lyrics, a setting of poems by Angelos Sikelianos, and the renowned Greek actress Eva Kotamanidou recounts a small miracle In St Luke’s Monastery. The symphonic poems Minas the Rebel and Death of the Valiant Woman present in purely orchestral garb contrasting tales of vengeance, valour and visionary transformation.
