Karaindrou, Eleni - Elegy of the Uprooting



Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
- In 2005, Eleni Karaindrou - joined by a vast cast - played 3 sold out shows at the Megaron in Athens with a special performance tracing themes of exile in her music for film and stage. These were recombined in a new "journey", a new form, an"Elegy of the Uprooting". A live double album was issued in 2006. Now comes the DVD.

- Seeing/hearing Karaindrou in concert is a unique experience - as audiences around the world are discovering. Experiencing Eleni in Athens is doubly special - as this beautifully made concert film makes evident.

- Watching the music being played allows us to investigate more closely the components of Karaindrou's sound world. Particularly fascinating is the way in which the traditional instruments ensemble, playing their 'folk' instruments are embraced by the banks of orchestral strings.

- Soloists include the great singer Maria Farantouri, the voice of Greek freedom - Plus Eleni herself at the piano

- While material from "The Weeping Meadow" and "Trojan Women" is emphasized here, the concert film embraces material from all of Karaindou's ECM discs, with reprises of pieces heard on "Ulysses' Gaze", "Eternity and A Day", "The Suspended Step of the Stork" and "Music for Films" (pieces from "Rosa", "Voyage to Cythera", "Happy Homecoming, Comrade", "Landscape in the Mist", and "The Beekeeper").

- It also adds theatre music for Chekhov's "The Seagull", and music written for Tonia Marketaki's film "The Price of Love".

Artist History
Born in the mountain village of Teichio in central Greece, Eleni Karaindrou studied piano and theory in Athens. In Paris from 67-75 she studied ethnomusicology, orchestration and conducting, and worked at Paris' National Museum of Arts and Traditions. In this period of exile, she also wrote and recorded songs, many of which were successfully covered by Greek singers.

In Greece in 1976, Karaindrou founded the Laboratory for Traditional Instrument Players at the cultural centre ORA in Athens.

A prolific composer, she has written music for numerous feature films, theatrical plays, TV films and series, radio plays, and more.

She has received many prizes including the Greek State Music Award 1998 for her music for "Eternity and Day", the Dimitris Mitropoulos Award 1992 for her music for theatre, the Fellini Award 1992 from Europa Cinema (Italy), Music State Awards (1987 and 1983) for her original scores for "The Beekeeper" and "The Price of Love", and Music Awards from the Thessaloniki Film Festival (1986 and 1982) for her music for "Happy Homecoming, Comrade" and "Rosa." Her closest artistic association has been with the great filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos - they have worked together for 25 years.

Eleni Karaindrou has recorded exclusively for ECM since 1991. In 2008 she headlined ECM festivals in Athens and in Frankfurt where her music was greeted with standing ovations.
