Perigiali [George Seferis] | Mikis Theodorakis | “On the seashore” | Singer: Maria Farantouri

“On the seashore” is a song by Mikis Theodorakis made on a poem by the great Greek poet George Seferis. It is a poem about inevitable changes in our lives where we have to let go of things we love and cherish and move on. The song was written in 1962 . It is a song that carries many of the distinct colours, phrases and sesnsations that make up what is Greece and I tried to couple those with photos that carry these feelings as well. Here it is performed by Maria Farantouri.

Denial In a hidden seashore white as a dove we found ourselves in midday, thirsty, but the water undrinkable. On the golden sand we wrote her name, how beautifully the breeze came and erased the writing. We started our life with all our heart, all our breath, all our passion — a mistake! and we changed our life. George Seferis was the pen name of Georgios Seferiadis (1900 — 1971). He was one of the most important Greek poets of the 20th century, and a Nobel laureate. He was also a career diplomat in the Greek Foreign Service, culminating in his appointment as Ambassador to the UK, a post which he held from 1957 to 1962. Mikis Theodorakis , born July 29, 1925, is one of the most renowned Greek songwriters and composers. Internationally, he is probably best known for his songs and for his scores for the films Zorba the Greek), and Serpico. Politically, he identified with the left until the late 1980s and has consistently opposed oppressive regimes and was the key voice against the Greek Junta 1967-1974, which imprisoned him. Maria Farantouri ,born in 28 November 1947, is a Greek singer and also a political and cultural activist. She has collaborated with prominent Greek composers such as Mikis Theodorakis

This song is a tribute to one of the greatest Romani songs, sung by some of the greatest singers of all times. In some way ,  it is our inspiration for entering into the mystical world of the gipsies.

Lyrics are written by Žarko Jovanović in Romani language, in the year 1949, but the melody already existed among Romani people of Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania. Some say that the original melody was of a love song and that it was known during the twenties of the last century and that Žarko Jovanović adopted it and wrote lyrics of his own dedicated to Roma people. It tells about the atrocities they suffered during World War II, and about the rise of Roma people that is about to come. It was adopted as the Romani national anthem at the first world congress of Roma people in 1971 in London.

leonard cohen dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin

Dance me through the panic til Im gathered safely in

Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone

Let me feel you moving like they do in babylon

Show me slowly what I only know the limits of

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Me to the wedding now, dance me on and on

Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long

Were both of us beneath our love, were both of us above

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born

Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn

Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin

Dance me through the panic till Im gathered safely in

Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Bebe – Cocaine | Siempre Me Quedará

Siempre Me Quedará

Cómo decir que me parte en mil
Las esquinitas de mis huesos?
Que han caído los esquemas de mi vida?
Ahora que todo era perfecto
Y algo más que eso
Me sorbiste el seso
Y me deciende el peso
De este cuerpecito mío
Que se ha convertío en río
De este cuerpecito mío
Que se ha convertío en río

Me cuesta abrir los ojos
Y lo hago poco a poco
No sea que aún te encuentre cerca
Me guardo tu recuerdo
Como el mejor secreto
Que dulce fué tenerte dentro

Hay un trozo de luz
En esta oscuridad
Para prestarme calma
El tiempo todo calma
La tempestad y la calma
El tiempo todo calma
La tempestad y la calma

Siempre me quedará
La voz suave del mar
Volver a respirar
La lluvia que caerá
Sobre este cuerpo y mojará
La flor que crece en mi
Y volver a reír
Y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti

En la voz suave del mar
En volver a respirar
La lluvia que caerá
Sobre este cuerpo y mojará
La flor que crece en mi
Y volver a reír
Y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti

Cómo decir que me parte en mil
Las esquinitas de mis huesos?
Que han caído los esquemas de mi vida?
Ahora que todo era perfecto
Y algo más que eso
Me sorbiste el seso
Y me decían del peso
De este cuerpecito mío
Que se ha convertío en río
De este cuerpecito mío
Que se ha convertío en río

Siempre me quedará
La voz suave del mar
Volver a respirar
La lluvia que caerá
Sobre este cuerpo y mojará
La flor que crece en mi
Y volver a reír
Y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti

En la voz suave del mar
En volver a respirar
La lluvia que caerá
Sobre este cuerpo y mojará
La flor que crece en mi
Y volver a reír
Y cada día un instante volver a pensar en ti

Charles Gounod | La Reine de Saba “Plus grand dans son obscurité” (Elīna Garanča)

Peter Dietrich | 1 ano atrás (editado)

Echo Classic 2013. Elïna Garanča au Konzerthaus de Berlin : le récital du cantique « Plus grand dans son obscurité » de l’opéra (Paris 1862) « La Reine du Sabbat » de Charles Gounod. (La légende de Balkis d’après Gérard de Nerval). L’entrée solennelle de l’aménité la plus exquise de la divinité du bel canto Elïna Garanča, précédée de l’éclat de l’aura de son renom, est ovationné chaleureusement des deux côtés du couloir central par un auditoire des gens de grand talent de la musique classique. Dans cette salle d’une architecture stylisée des somptuosités modernes de la Maison de Concert de Berlin, la pléiade internationale des étoiles de l’opéra s’est donnée-là rendez-vous en auditoire avertie des récitals accompagnés de l’orchestre pour l’attribution du prestigieux trophée très prisé de « La Cantatrice de l’année ». Digne de la Reine de Sabbat mise en scène musicale, la couleur assortie de la robe d’apparat longue et ample, le tendre bleu clair métallisé, accentue de cette amour d’Elïna la féerique fascination de l’expression des grands yeux aux éclats des saphirs bleus du bel visage au teint d’une blancheur satinée, auréolé de sa couronne des splendides cheveux blonds.
