Vassilis Tsabropoulos (b.1966): Music for Piano & Voice - "Eleison" / Nektaria Karantzi, voice; Vassilis Tsabropoulos, piano

Notes & Reviews:

"Eleison" is the long expected new release of the internationally acclaimed pianist, composer and conductor Vassilis Tsabropoulos. Having echoes from Tsabropoulos' previous distinguished albums, "Eleison" explores again in depth the roots of ancient music and the mysterious nature of sacred Byzantine music. The cycle of these new compositions for piano and voice seems to be a point of completion of the composer's wandering in a particularly colorful byt unpretentious music world. Gifted female vocalist of sacred music Nektaria Karantzi joins Tsabropoulos for this release. Vassilis Tsabropoulos is considered to be one of the greatest Greek pianists. He is also internationally recognized as a conductor and composer. He is the Honorary President of the Sergei Rachmaninov Greek Society, and the founder, music director, and Principal Conductor of the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra of Athens. Nektaria Karantzi's voice has been identified mainly with the Byzantine sacred art and has been regarded as one of the most important voices in Byzantine Chant. She has been working with Byzantine music since she was fourteen years old. Her performances across Greece and abroad are purely devoted to Byzantine Chant, making her the perfect choice for this recording.
