An exceptional live recording, Concert In Athens, the tenth ECM release by Greek composer Eleni Karaindrou, incorporates moving performances by guests Kim Kashkashian and Jan Garbarek. The US violist and the Norwegian saxophonist have each made important contributions to Karaindrou’s music in the past, Garbarek with his playing in the score for The Beekeeper (see Music for Films) and ...

Format: Audio CD
Karaindrou's music is superb, and this CD offers the rare opportunity to get a glimpse of music that's been maturing in the dark for years, waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. The contents of the CD span some period of time and therefore offer the listener the chance to get a rough idea of the composer's creative development. The music is slow and dark and ravishing. Karaindrou has studied and thoroughly assimilated not only the so called classical tradition but the ethnic musical traditions of Greece and other countries for years, as well. The result is a unique breed, far exceeding what we would expect from a simple soundtrack.

Elizabeth Schwarzkopf said that the sign of a good lieder recital is, that one comes out of a different person from the person who went in. Ms Karaindrou's music does not need the endorsement of the great Schwarzkopf; by quality, it is the sort of music that has the same effect on the listener; nor does it need the visual support of the films it was written for in order to be appreciated; all it needs is your open, receptive, and responsive heart.

Its beauty, delicacy, and piercing quality should make ECM [the label to be credited for all her recordings] put a warning on each of her CD's - "Caution - Highly Addictive".

I hope that Amazon will soon include among the listings of Ms Karaindrou's CD's the newly released Dust of Time, yet another gem to treasure.

Profoundly beautiful - sad and hopeful at the same time. If you love her music, and the films she writes for, you'll love this. Rosa's Song is beautiful and stirring.

Format: Audio CD
Eleni Karaindrou is probably the most successful Greek film composer to have remained working entirely within European cinema rather than go to Hollywood, as did Vangelis, and before him, though to a lesser extent, Mikis Theodorakis. Karaindrou has written the music for 18 films, and also composed extensively for television, radio and ballet, as well as providing the music for 40 theatrical productions. All of which are mediums which demonstrate her affinity for drama.
Eleni Karaindrou 's music has been internationally acclaimed both by critics and by audiences, and has acquired its autonomy through records and concerts. However, international reviews have also remarked upon the uniqueness of her relationship with Theo Angelopoulos' cinema and the reference to it has been constant since the beginning of their collaboration, seventeen years ago, in 1983. Excellent composer!!!!

Sorry... just found it boring, predictable and unispiring.
Quite acclaimed composer but too depressing and not my cup of tea.
