Effie Agrafioti - Sounds from the Drawer No. 2

Irida 031

Six months after the warm reception of Sounds from the Drawer, Irida Classical and pianist Effie Agrafioti follow up with a second album bearing the same title, and similar aritistic intentions to the first.

Greek soloist Effie Agrafioti once again recorded pieces which are not widely known, but which deserve to be, inspired by the words of Rena Kyriakou: “In order for us to a become acquainted with a piece of music we have to hear it, otherwise it doesn’t exist”.

The album contains 24 compositions by 17 composers. The oldest piece was composed in 1739 and the newest in 1990, spanning 260 years of musical beauty. Some of the composers on the album are known to us as soloists and great teachers, but few are known as composers. For her second collection of Sounds from the Drawer, Effie Agrafioti consciously chose several pieces by Ukrainian and Russian composers.

The cover painting is by the acclaimed Greek painter Janis Psychopedis. The album was recorded at Irida Recording Studio.
