Danae Kara, an award-winning greek piano virtuoso, plays four works of Manos Hadjidakis. Piano music of Hadjidakis is as unique, as the myriad influences which nurish it, reflecting the wide range of the composer's interests. The suite "For a white little seashell" comprises five preludes followed by traditional greek dances, while the "Six popular pictures" are arrangements of rebetika songs. The intimate and playful character of his "Ionian suite" complements the solemn dignity of "Rhythmology", whose rhythms derive from traditional melodic patterns. Enjoy great piano music, played by a classical pianist, trained at the NY Juilliard School.
