The Soul Of epirus
NEW ALBUM ‘THE SOUL OF EPIRUS’ OUT ON OCTOBER 4TH
About The Album
This album is based on a creative approach to the instrumental pieces and the playing style established by the great clarinetist from Epirus (Northwestern Greece), Kitsos Harisiadis, in the decade of 1920-30. This time, focus is on a new dialogue between the master clarinetist Petroloukas Halkias and the laouto virtuso Vasilis Kostas, through which this music is translated based on the conversation between the two musical instruments. Kitsos Harisiadis created a unique and yet complex musical language based on the repertoire of Epirus, which Petroloukas Halkias maintained and further developed throughout his life. Vasilis Kostas now translates this playing philosophy from Petroloukas Halkias’ clarinet into his laouto.
