"Zorba the Greek" composer Theodorakis dies at 96

Athens, Sept 2. -Reuters - Composer Mikis Theodorakis, whose music crossed international boundaries in his captivating score for the film "“Zorba the Greek", died on Thursday, plunging Greece into three days of mourning.
A towering man with a brooding presence and a shock of wavy hair, Theodorakis's work evoked a progressive, democratic vision of the world, though his political struggles reflected a darker side of Greece rarely seen by visitors.
As news of his death at home in Athens at the age of 96 swept across the country of 11 million, authorities declared three days of mourning and tributes poured in from across the political spectrum. "Today we lost a part of Greece's soul. Mikis Theodorakis, Mikis the teacher, the intellectual, the radical, our Mikis has gone," said Culture Minister Lina Mendoni.

Eric Bowman, 1960 | Jazz music

Eric Bowman è nato a Pasadena ed è cresciuto a Orange County, in California. Essenzialmente un artista autodidatta, ha avuto un talento per il disegno fin da quando riesce a ricordare, sempre l'artista della scuola durante i suoi anni di scuola elementare e superiore.
Per vocazione, però, l'arte non è stata guidata da un percorso ben definito, ed è diventata un esercizio di apertura di porte che implicano opportunità artistiche.
Mentre il freelance a tempo pieno come artista commerciale lo ha tenuto lavoratore autonomo per molti anni, è stato solo un incontro casuale con due importanti pittori californiani alla fine degli anni '90 che Eric ha sperimentato un importante cambiamento nella sua visione del mondo dell'arte che lo ha portato a un nuovo viaggio nella pittura d'arte.

Anatoly Metlan, 1964 | Flamenco dancers


Anatoly Metlan’s travels serve as inspiration for his paintings, whether it’s the beauty of Mediterranean landscapes or talented flamenco and tango dancers in Spain. From a young age, Metlan was influenced by the Impressionists, often traveling to southern France to draw the same inspiration as these artists.
More recently, Metlan has focused on depicting dancers, musicians, and gypsies.
In his paintings of dancers, Metlan emphasizes sensual tango poses, forever capturing moments of energy, emotion, and drama.
Full of passion, these paintings draw upon Metlan’s memories of attending flamenco concerts in southern Europe.
"I was captivated by the dramatic suspended tension and the emotional expressiveness of dance moves" Metlan says.

Niccolò Paganini: "La felicità non esiste ma la si canta!" | Quotes / Aforismi

Barney Seale | A head of Niccolo Paganini, 1782-1840

"The violin is my mistress, but the guitar is my master".

"Paganini non ripete!"
"Paganini does not repeat!"

"My secret, if I can call it secret, will indicate the violinists the way to penetrate the instrument much better than what has been done until now and it can demonstrate them, that violin is much more full of opportunities than what is commonly believed.
This discovery is not due to chance, but it is due to a deep study and applying it will no longer be necessary to practice four or five hours a day, it will remove the current scholar method, which studies to make the instrument difficult instead of teaching it".

Franz Liszt | Romantic composer | Quotes / Aforismi

  • Music embodies feeling without forcing it to contend and combine with thought, as it is forced in most arts and especially in the art of words.
  • I conclude that the Wagnerian operas which are already in the repertoire, and other master works as well, stand in no further need of my services.
  • I did not compose my work as one might put on a church vestment… rather it sprung from the truly fervent faith of my heart, such as I have felt it since my childhood.
  • I find little in the works of Beethoven, Berlioz, Wagner and others when they are led by a conductor who functions like a windmill.
  • I foster a sorrowful conception of affection. Make no sacrifices.
  • In Hungary all native music, in its origin, is divided naturally into melody destined for song or melody for the dance.
  • Inspiration is enough to give expression to the tone in singing, especially when the song is without words.
  • It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion with nature than that of the Gypsy.
  • It is my fervent wish and my greatest ambition to leave a work with a few useful instructions for the pianists after me.
