The new record employment rates are writing about the project

"The creation of this album started from the idea of coexistence of three major performers of different generations and different styles, with songs by Mikis Theodorakis.

Socrates Malamas, Alkinoos Ioannidis and Yannis Haroulis responded with joy and willingness to call that I made them sing songs of Mikis, their choice. I thank them especially for this. With their unique personality each and the particular mode of interpretation and creative approach, give another dimension by demonstrating in practice that the songs of Mikis can always meet their future. This album is dedicated to completing 90 years of creative life of Mikis Theodorakis'.

Maria Farantouri

"Once, at a concert, I sat next to Mikis Theodorakis while a colleague was singing on stage. Sometime he leaned into my ear and said, '' Nice song, whose is it? ''. It was his ...

The number of songs is huge! Here, I chose six of the least known. They are different, written at other times and under other circumstances. The beauty I looked them enough and I did not feel the need to ekmonterniso them. Just to give an opportunity to my own expression joining them. Keeping their bodies alone, and left them to choose their clothes: sometimes loneliness of the voice, a guitar or a piano, and sometimes larger sets. Each song stands alone. As a whole, however, I hope that they give a small sample of the range of their creator, who in the storm of the century and his life has reserved the dream.

The result of the recording and the mix was determined by the knowledge and the gentle insistence sound engineer George Karioti. I thank him from the heart. I also thank Christos Otto and his friends musicians played. And of course, Maria Farantouri on the call, the trust and support. "

Alkinoos Ioannidis

"From reservoir music of Mikis Theodorakis, retract these songs, in the same way that shows us the unexpected memory and unnecessary people and events ... almost accidentally.

Companion, teacher, father and friend, have the courage to offer everyone and paradoxically everyone individually, the indomitable desire for freedom that we have forgotten and a justice that never appeared without overlooking that melodically and harmonically plans work can serve as a robust and reliable vehicle for those who will travel in the future, on the lines of a Greek musical path. He has devoted all of us the entire project.

Reciprocate those same songs with the way he sees and paints in the heart of each of us. With our love. "

Sokratis Malamas

"Studying the work of Mikis Theodorakis felt like I touched a piece of modern history. I heard great lyrics .Pira a great voice lesson trying to sing it correctly. I found the music of something from the robust and deep Crete and logged with it.

Thank you from the heart. I hope, the joy that I have given joy and the same.

Songs with which I participate played by musicians Lefteris Andriot, Michael Kalkanis, Konstantis Pistiolis and Thanasis Tzingkovits. The sound was Panagiotis Rizopoulos and John Paxevanis.

Together we did. Without them, I would not have made it. "

Yannis Haroulis
