Welcome to our studio. Today we invited an interesting guest… it will be a quite intense experience since he is not in a very good mood and he usually doesn’t like to talk about his life. Try not to feel too depressed after listening to Eddie’s misfortunes..
Like every week we have a new musician for you to enjoy. The last days, whenever I went out I smelled the spring here. The sun warmed me up and the birds started again to sing their beautiful songs. At a wonderful time like that when the whole nature awakes, I really don’t like to hear loud and fast songs, I like to hear melodic, calm, lovely music.
Of course people started to describe and to analyze the past a long time ago, and history, as a matter of fact, was firstly invented in ancient Greece. Herodotus, who lived in the 5th century B.C.E. is known as the “Father of History”. The preface of his writing “Histories” begins with the exposure of the author’s intention of collecting deeds and facts, as well as the causes behind them, in order to keep them in humans’ memory.
Today I would like to introduce you to a Greek artist, the most important representative for the arte povera movement, who passed away some weeks ago in Italy. Jannis Kounellis, a painter, sculptor and conceptual artist, was born 23rd march 1936 in Piraeus the harbor of Athens and spend his youth there.
Today I would like to introduce to you a magnificent Greek composer and poet, which was along with Mikis Theodorakis one of the main movers of the “Έntechni” music. He lived from the 23rd October 1925 until the 15th June 1994 and had a life full of self created music, of which the most pieces count today as classical ones.
