Charis Dimaras - Piano music by Dimitri Mitropoulos and Yorgo Sicilianos was chosen to be released in 2010 to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Greek-American conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos’ death. The album contains a performance of Mitropoulos’ Greek Sonata by acclaimed pianist Charis Dimaras, which is also the first time the sonata is released on CD worldwide.

This release by Irida Classical consists of works for flute and flute and piano duos. It was coproduced with the State Conservatoire of Thessaloniki and received funding from the Greek Composers' Union.

irida 005 200(Irida 005)

This album brings together works which span the whole of the 20th century, covering a wide variety of musical styles. The journey begins with Argentinian Tangos by A. Piazzolla and the Greek folklore elements present in the music of N. Skalkottas and reaches the imaginative minimalism of J. Adams and the jazzy influences of G.Gershwin without leaving out references to B. Bartok and W. Lutoslawsky.

 

irida 004 200(Irida 004)

This is the second album of original music by renowned guitarist and teacher Vangelis Boudounis. Over twenty five years have past since the first album of the same title was released (the title is borrowed from the legendary radio show which was broadcasted on the second program of Greek national radio). The pieces presented here have been written over a span of thirty years often a long time apart from eachother so we are treated to a great variety of moods and musical styles.

irida 003 200(Irida 003)

Orchestral Suites could be considered to be a musical portrait of acclaimed composer Periklis Koukos. The pieces on this CD are orchestral versions of pieces from two of his operas- Manuel Salinas and Conroy and his Copies, performed by the Sofia Radio Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Valeri Vatchev.

 

irida 002 200(Irida 002)

Works for string ensemble by Y. Drositis, K. Flerianos, and A. Papadopoulos.

These works are by three contemporary composers who pursue similar artistic visions and all share l'esprit du temps. They draw inspiration from nature, Greek music and the poetry of Konstantine Kavafis, and together claim their place in the classical music scene with original ideas and a fresh point of view.

irida 001 200(Irida 001)

The current recording release is comprised of chamber music compositions by Dimitris Dragatakis which, apart from Sonata no.1 for violin and piano, were until now absent from Hellenic discography. The chosen works show Dragatakis' compositional development from his youthful years up to his mature period.
