Description: This is a collection of folk-music-inspired songs, whether originally written for voice the composer does not tell us in his note; perhaps the cello stands in for a voice singing in Greek and helps make the listening experience more holistic. The title of the disc “East of the Aegean” defines the musical sources of Theodorakis’ childhood and youth evoked here: coastal Asia Minor, Chios, Lesbos and Ikaria. Jens Naumilkat (cello), Henning Schmiedt (piano).
