Description

An extraordinary DVD concert recording of the music of Eleni Karaindrou - her first live set for ECM - filmed in her hometown of Athens in 2005. Elegy of the Uprooting is effectively an anthology of her greatest music for stage and screen, performed by 130 musicians. It's an epic journey in colours, sounds and rhythms, shedding light on the themes of uprooting, exodus, exile and homecoming - themes that recur in Karaindrou's haunting work.

Personnel: Camerata Orchestra, Alexandros Myrat (conductor), Hellenic Radio Television Choir, Maria Farantouri (voice), Vangelis Christopoulos (oboe), Eleni Karaindrou (piano) & 16 other named soloists
