Notes & Reviews:
In his lavishly scored oratorio 'The Liturgy of Orpheus' Yannis Markopoulos combines fragments of Orphic poems with a narrative text by Panos Theodoridis to create a work brimming with melodies, rhythms and instrumental tone colours, including those of guitar, lute, kanonaki, lyre, harp and piano, beside full symphony orchestra, chorus, soloists and narrator. Inspired by "the eloquent silence of ancient texts", 'The Liturgy of Orpheus' is a remarkable song of the earth that revitalizes the myth of the prophet-musician for those who seek the restoration of the natural environment.
