Global Greeks: To Vangelis Papathanassiou - Xronia Polla kai Kala!
A post to wish Happy Birthday to one of our most acclaimed Global Greeks, Academy Award winning composer Vangelis Papathanassiou.
As it is Holy Week we thought we would share with you one of his lesser known works - an arrangement from Rapsodies - a marvellous collection of Orthodox hymns resulting from the unique collaboration of Vangelis with Irene Papas - two of our most famous Global Greeks!!
The haunting Ton Nymfona sou Vlepo - one of the most beautiful hymns of our Orthodox Holy Week, sung by Irene Papas, arranged by Vangelis Papathanassiou.
Xronia Polla kai Kala Vangeli! We thank you for the magnificent music you given us! Na ziseis!
