CD Reviews

Clarinet interpretations
06/05/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 1996 album is by a friend of Vangelis, Greek clarinetist Vassilis Saleas and the album notes mention discussions between the two on matters of interpretation. It is a cover/hommage album with a difference: the clarinet (with backing acoustic instruments and synths) provides a more obviously "Greek" atmosphere to Vangelis' more universal melodies. The album contains many more tracks than are listed here. Saleas has done similar work on his album of Theodorakis' work: "Litany". If you like this you should also try music by Greek film composer Eleni Karaindrou e.g. Music for films. (Note to Amazon: the track listing for that ECM album is also severely truncated and it is NOT a jazz album. ECM also does classical/film music)"
