Recorded live at the Palast der Republik, East Berlin, on Febr. 14, 1980 as Radio DT 64 Youth Concert in occasion of the X. Festival of Political Song. I can't think of another recording with a similarly strong political statement in the history of music. It was staged during the Cold War in the Palast der Republik, merely 1 mile from the Berlin Wall that would divide the World into a communist and a capitalist hemisphere for another 10 years.

Pour la première fois, un film s'intéresse à l'ensemble de l’œuvre du compositeur grec Mikis Theodorakis et en dévoile des facettes inattendues. En un peu moins d'une heure, ce documentaire balaie près de soixante-dix ans de création artistique. Un parcours qui s'étend des premières mélodies et cantates liturgiques à la musique de chambre, de la Sinfonietta des années 1940 à la Suite n° 1 pour piano et orchestre, des compositions de la période parisienne aux mélodies des années 1960, de l'oratorio Canto general à la Symphonie n° 4, des rhapsodies pour guitare et violoncelle aux opéras. La musique et le destin de Mikis Theodorakis ne sauraient être dissociés des soubresauts de l'histoire de son pays et de celle l'Europe. En juillet 2010, cette légende vivante de la Grèce moderne a fêté ses 85 ans.

The lyric side of Theodorakis, in a very important work, The Lyric Songs (Ta Lyrika). This rare album immortalizes a live concert, held in August 1977, on the hill of Lycabetus in Athens. You will have the opportunity to hear the composer himself, singing all the songs, backed by two female and one male voices. The arrangements are superb with a small orchestra of top musicians playing cello, classical guitar, piano, contra bass and percussions. Theodorakis, sings with his unique "stepping" style, giving a "rhythm" to all these sweet melodies. The contradiction between the melodic cello and the rhythmic way of Theodorakis is really captivating. A milestone in the Greek musical history.

This album includes two song cycles: "The song of the dead brother" (tracks 1-9) with Grigoris Bithikotsis and "Deserters", written on poetry of Yiannis Theodorakis, with the composer himself singing. We could say that the first cycle is where Theodorakis embraces the "zeimbekiko" dance, since 5 out of 9 songs are among the best zeimbekika ever composed. Greeks adored these songs and they sing and dance them till today. Excellent bouzouki played by two virtuoso and of course Grigoris Bithikotsis in his zenith. Very interesting is the listening of young Mikis Theodorakis (37 yo), singing the 4 last songs, the "Deserters" cycle. He never reclaimed a singer's voice, but you can feel his soul in it. After all, it is his beloved brother's poetry.

Mikis Theodorakis is legendary Greek composer, born in Chios, Greece on 29th July 1925. He has worked for the Greek as well as international music industry for the last 70 years, contributing close to a thousand songs along the way. He has mostly centered his compositions to 20th century classical Greek music, working in a wide setting of genres. In a career that has been marred by rich musical taste, he has worked in various dimensions of production such as symphonic works, chamber music, cantatas, hymns, operas, stage plays and film scores. His work, in addition to featuring classical Greek poems and literature, is also influenced by his political leanings and struggles which were shaped throughout his life.

Mikis Theodorakis is a renowned Greek troubadour and one of his country's greatest composers. He wrote many symphonies, cantatas, several ballets and operas, plus popular songs including "Zorba the Greek," famous from Herb Alpert's instrumental hit. Born in 1925 on the Greek island of Chios, Theodorakis began writing songs quite early. He formed his own choir and gave his first performance at the age of 17. An active resistance fighter during World War II, he studied at the conservatories in both Athens and Paris (the latter with Olivier Messiaen).
