Format: COMPACT DISC
López Guzmán, Mireille; Fernández López, Perla; Lowry, Christopher; Constantinides String Quartet; Moon, Sandra
Dino Constantinides' love of Greek folk music permeates his works. His father Demetrios played the folk tunes from his village Marmara, in Epirus, Greece, on the violin by ear. The composer said, "Now, after so many years, I remember the way he was making music and I look to the sounds he used to make as the source of my inspiration. And they are used in abundance in my musical compositions." These influences are easily heard in the compositions featured on this release. Constantinides’ compositions are juxtaposed here with works by Niloufar Iravani and Christopher Lowry.
