    Default "Musica Poetica" by Attika

    As often happens, I came across this cd of classical music on the Cafe. Maybe Victor Kioulaphides wrote about it. He told me how to order a copy. I got a package from Italy (a first for me) with the cd in it, and I like it a lot. It celebrates the poetry of Nikiforos Vrettakos (1912-1991), and before each classical selection, a poem of the poet is read,
    first in Greek and then in English. I loved hearing a language I knew nothing about and had never heard spoken. The classical pieces, there are 8 of them, are well played too.
    For me, a very special cd.

    Wonderful! I had the pleasure of attending one of ATTIKA's live performances last February, and was delighted to hear this, and many other works as played by these excellent musicians. I am so very proud of all of them, and all the great work that they do!

    Three cheers for ATTIKA!
