The Western tendency to place melody at the center of musical experience has meant that the music of ancient Greece, which survives only in a few disjointed fragments of an imperfectly understood notation, has been written off for lost. But of course it's not lost. Greek instruments have come down to museum collections here and there, and many of the missing pieces related to their construction can be filled in by examining the numerous representations of instruments in Greek art.

World Music / Ethnic / Ganassi Recorder / Percussion

Transience is the debut CD from an unusual, worldly (not just ‘world’-y) Australian duo. Racheal Cogan is a widely-travelled, skilled, creative player of the recorder. Forget ‘primary school’ notions of her instrument! Tony Lewis is one of Australia’s finest, most musically-diverse percussionists. When they met and first played together in 2005 they knew their duo would be ongoing, evolving. Transience (subtitled Contemporary Modal Music) has new versions of traditional pieces from Turkey and Macedonia, plus contemporary compositions by Racheal and by the most famous of her teachers/mentors - the Cretan-resident, Ross Daly.

Mikis Theodorakis is legendary Greek composer, born in Chios, Greece on 29th July 1925. He has worked for the Greek as well as international music industry for the last 70 years, contributing close to a thousand songs along the way. He has mostly centered his compositions to 20th century classical Greek music, working in a wide setting of genres. In a career that has been marred by rich musical taste, he has worked in various dimensions of production such as symphonic works, chamber music, cantatas, hymns, operas, stage plays and film scores. His work, in addition to featuring classical Greek poems and literature, is also influenced by his political leanings and struggles which were shaped throughout his life.
