KALOMIRIS, M.: Solo Piano Work (Complete) (Chauzu)

Recognised as the father of modern Greek music, Manolis Kalomiris was also devoted to education, as can be heard in the superbly crafted volumes For Greek Children written throughout his life. Kalomiris’ early piano works build on the Romantic legacy of Chopin and Liszt, the Ballades filled with poetic references. The later Rhapsodies and Preludes demonstrate how far the composer, now free from the Romantic influence of his years in Vienna, had moved towards creating a Greek national school based both on authentic Greek folk songs and on the most advanced musical techniques.
