    Petite nocturne

I'll add here some description for anything I upload,so while you listen,be sure to read :)

Petit Nocturne:
Something slow,recorded by me,thus the crappy sound,intented to be the first of a series of works,in the same atitude. It's greek title is "Μικρο Νυχτερινό".

Nocturne in G minor:
Continuing the Nocturnes,here comes another one,a bit brighter I think,richer in modulations and themes.However,for the time beeing I submited a version played by finale-when I have time I'll record it myshelf.There is a ritenuto which shouldn't be there (sounds too much),and I am a bit sceptical about the end. Above,I talked about a "series of works".Well,I think I made my mind,It'll be a series of Nocturnes and maybe a fantasy or two,time will tell.


Waltz of the Wishes:

This piece dates back to the summer of 2008...Originally written for piano and violin/flute, but later on changed my mind. This was propably the first piece to complete and be proud of. It reminds me of some fine years in highschool, and it's really asking me to get down to recording it. Also I decided to put on my name instead of nickname.

Hey Spiros, I just listened to some of your stuff on Soundcloud. Very interesting. I enjoyed the Nocturne, Chorale, Invention in C and the Funeral March. Your music is defininetly recognizable as yours, you have your own style. It's very enjoyable. Have you done any orchestral stuff? Just curious. Oh, and I also heard the harpsichord piece, that was very cool. I'm assuming you're posting fragments of your work. I'd love to hear a complete piece.  Off the subject, but how did you get your page to look so cool?

That's cool, Spiros, I'll check out your pieces on Soundcloud and I will look forward to any feedback you have on Skating.

Spiros, I just lsitened to your pieces on your page (actually I had listened to the cello sonata previously). I liked the Nocturne in Gm best. for some strange reason, I keep wondering what it would be like on a harpsichord. Have you tried it that way? It might be interesting to post it on that instrument, and see what others think. If not, that's cool. Just a thought. I enjoyed it as it is, in any case.

A random, pleasant find

Pianist Anatoli Vedernikov. I happened to buy a vinyl of him playing mozart, Haydn and Schumann. Soviet musician, the record printed in the USSR in 1987 (I think?). Excellent condition, very high quality recording and a very clear, precise style, it is classical yet has some emotional touches to it, keeping a very good balance, everything Mozart needs and I admit, his sonata no. 11 did make a good impression on me (it's one of those sonatas by mozart that i actually like, lol). I wonder what…


Oh, I love junk shops

Some months ago I had gone for a walk to the junk shops downtown. Among other things, those places are pure heaven for getting vinyl records. So while browsing through, I stumble upon this 21 record colection of Beethoven's piano works (all of them), played by no other than the mighty Alfred Brendel. "How much", I ask. "1 euro each. You want them". "Damn yes I do.". The package included the record notes and the box, and 21 records in pretty much good to excellent condition. The most curious…

Oh my. It's quite the beast. It trully is revolultion. In everything. At the same time it is like a textbook written for the piano-everything you can do with it is in that sonata. Every possible range of the clavier, every dynamic, is there. The music has so many layers that makes you wonder, was he perhaps planing a symphonic work?  

And the spirit of the music. So forceful and vigorous, yet unstable, sometimes overjoyed and pompous, sometimes strugling, shouting in agony. Pure…
