"Eleison", The new world-wide release of Vassilis Tsabropoulos with Nektaria Karantzi
"Eleison" is the long expected, by the audience and the critics, new world-wide release of the internationally acclaimed pianist, composer and conductor Vassilis Tsabropoulos. Having echoes from Tsabropoulos’ previous distinguish albums ("Akroasis", "Chant Hymns and Dances", "Melos", all released by ECM) "Eleison" explores again in depth the roots of ancient music and the mysterious nature of sacred Byzantine music. This time the composer is joined by the very gifted female vocalist of sacred music Nektaria Karantzi.
The cycle of these new compositions for piano and voice seems to be a point of completion of the composer's wandering in a particularly colorful but unpretentious music world, which Vassilis Tsabropoulos serves and highlights masterfully through his recordings.
MSO records is a new record label with international release, founded by the acclaimed pianist, composer and conductor Vassilis Tsabropoulos. MSO record’s philosophy, based on inspired creativity and taking the advantage of guiding by the artistic experience of its founder Vassilis Tsabropoulos, will explore the classic repertoire, the sacred religious music from all over the world and will bring in life the music of new composers. Embracing the possibility of digital access, all the recordings will be offered also digitally in high quality with new insights and in an ultimate way. For MSO records music is a holy land of sacrificial creation.
