Klampanis’s ‘Ariadne's Duality’ performed by Dimitris Soukaras (21st Century Greek Guitar Music)
BUY / STREAM / DOWNLOAD: https://Naxos.lnk.to/8579115ID Petros Klampanis's composition is based on the myth of Ariadne, who fell in love with Theseus, an ancient hero who symbolises social justice, culture and generosity. After helping him escape the labyrinth, she leaves with him for Athens. On the way they stop at the island of Naxos, where Ariadne meets Dionysus, the Greek god of fertility and wine and a symbol of insanity and hyperbole. She leaves Theseus and marries Dionysus. Can the guitar, with its vast capacity of expression, express these two antithetic characters? In his music Klampanis finds purpose by combining elements from Greek folk music, jazz and classical music. In Ariadne’s Duality he have used the guitar as both a percussive and a polyphonic instrument. Dimitris Soukaras is a classical guitarist based in the UK. He is committed to expanding the repertoire for the guitar and has commissioned a number of leading non-guitarist composers to compose for his instrument. Through his imaginative programming and chamber music collaborations he seeks to redefine the relationship between the guitar and the audience. He is a D’Addario Artist, a Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, a beneficiary of the Stradivari Trust, winner of the International Guitar Foundation’s Young Artist Platform, and a Eurostring Artist. A laureate of 20 guitar and music competitions, he has received the David Russell Prize, the Mottola International Competition, the Ivor Mairants Guitar Award and the Academy of Athens Award. He is the founder and the artistic director of MUΣA Concert Series.

Scarborough Fair | Arr. Dimitris Soukaras
Folk music always intrigued and inspired me. I would like to share with you a special project that is surrounded by friends and colleagues. We didn’t have a chance to play music together for a long period, considering the current situation, each one of us from our home we manage to bring this project to life! I am presenting you my arrangement on one of my most favorite folk songs, the English traditional tune Scarborough Fair. I hope you enjoy it! Please do share and leave your comments! ------------------------------------------------------- Voices: Mirsini Athitaki Zsuzsanna Szilagyi Falia Papagiannopoulou Violin: Roberts Balanas Cello: Georgia Morse DoubleBasse: Nikitas Fousteris El.

Franz Schubert - Lob der Thränen, D.711 | Dimitris Soukaras "little stories"
"little stories" is a set of short videos that include small pieces that are not originally composed for guitar, and are written by some of my favorite composers of Classical Music. #1story #London #RegentsPark Schubert Lieder - Lob der Thränen (for voice and piano) Arranged for guitar by Johan Kaspar Mertz. This is the first of the six Schubert's songs that Mertz arranged for the guitar. Throughout Mertz's transcriptions, the expression and dynamic signs are largely copied from Liszt's arrangements (on the same Schubert's songs); sometimes they are altered or abbreviated.

Wenn die feuchten Augen leuchten Von der Wehmut lindem Tau, Dann entsiegelt, Drin gespiegelt, Sich dem Blick die Himmelsau. Wie erquicklich Augenblicklich Löscht es jede wilde Glut! Wie vom Regen Blumen pflegen, Hebet sich der matte Mut.
