A multidimensional journey Vangelis will present his new album in 2021: On "Juno To Jupiter", the Greek composer and electronic music pioneer devotes himself to the mission of Juno. In a total of 14 tracks, he takes his listeners on a multidimensional musical journey. He is supported by the Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu. "Juno To Jupiter" was inspired by the mission of NASA's Juno space probe to explore Jupiter. The music combines acoustic symphonic music with electronic sounds and sounds from Juno's launch on Earth, the probe and Juno's subsequent journey back to Earth. Juno owes her name to Roman mythology. The Roman god Jupiter, equivalent to the Greek "sky father" Zeus, put a veil of clouds around himself to hide his mischief. His wife Juno (the Greek Hera), however, could see through the clouds to reveal her husband's true nature. Compared to this, the Juno space probe looks through the clouds to reveal the planet Jupiter and its secrets. Vangelis explained: "I wanted to emphasize the characteristics of Jupiter/Zeus and Hera/Juno, who had a special relationship according to the Greek Theogony. I felt that I should portray Zeus/Jupiter with sound only, as the laws of music transform chaos into harmony, which moves everything and life itself. Unlike Hera/Juno, I felt the need for a voice. Angela Gheorghiu stunningly portrays Hera/Juno in this historical account of the mission to the planet Jupiter."
