The stage cantata David features Eleni Karaindrou’s music for a unique piece of Aegean drama, a verse play with words by an unknown 18th century poet from the island of Chios.

Its text (first published only in 1979), invites a musical response and Greek composer Karaindrou rises splendidly to the challenge, imaginatively moving between past and present in her settings for mezzo-soprano and baritone singers, instrumental soloists, choir and orchestra.

Kim Kashkashian’s evocative viola against strings may trigger associations with Karaindrou’s acclaimed writing for the film ‘Ulysses’ Gaze’. The music also draws inspiration from the world of baroque opera as singers Irini Karagianni and Tassis Christoyannopoulos are brought to the foreground. Karaindrou’s David is a work of changing music colours. Recorded live at the Athens Megaron, it was edited and mixed by Manfred Eicher and Nikos Espialdis for CD release.

Eleni Karaindrou has been an ECM recording artist since 1991, working closely with producer Manfred Eicher in rearranging and adapting compositions originally written for stage and screen for album release. Her ECM recordings include ‘Music for Films’, ‘The Suspended Step of the Stork’, ‘Ulysses’ Gaze’, ‘Eternity and a Day’, ‘Trojan Women’, ‘The Weeping Meadow’, the concert ‘Elegy of the Uprooting’ (on CD and DVD), ‘Dust of Time’, ‘Concert in Athens’ and ‘Medea’.
