Nikos Skalkottas - The Sea, Ballet Suite - Four Images - Cretian Feast (D. Mitropoulos, Orchestrated by Skalkottas) - Greek Dance in C Minor - Iceland Symphony Orchestra - Byron Fidetzis - BIS 2005

Nikos Skalkottas was one of the greatest 20th century Greek composers. I have been quite fond of his music for many years and BIS in particular has done a great service in helping to raise awareness of the colorful, brilliantly crafted music of this special composer. I do not have time to write anything at all (I've included the booklet notes) about the disc as I have to leave for work (I feel badly that I have been too busy to post more, so I figured I'd add a fast, and very good post) but will finish the post properly late tonight. I hope everyone enjoys!

Hello Ashot. To be honest I would rather have links on here for blogs that share music. Your blog is however a good idea-I wish I still had all of my (classical)vinyl. I would consider doing something similar perhaps
