Yiannis Glezos - The Roses Of Pieria - Instrumental Music Inspired By Ancient Greek Lyric Poetry

His first album was released back in 1968 and it was a collection of art-folk songs of his. Since then, he has released eleven albums with more or less complicate music structures that varied from art-folk song to chamber music and Progressive rock on poetry. Published in the year 2013 on the Musea Parallèle label, "The Roses Of Pieria - Instrumental Music Inspired By Ancient Greek Lyric Poetry" contains twenty-one instrumental pieces and one song. Aside the rock band, additional instruments were used like trumpet, violin, viola, oboe, clarinet or traditional Greek instruments like Cretan lyre, Pontiac lyre, which give an exceptional Greek or even Archaic color to the project. It is difficult to define the music of the album, but there are certainly there the Greek Traditional Music, Progressive rock structures and the so called Entehno (Greek Art folk-song) melodic passages. The recursion to Ancient Greek Poetry signifies a conscious reference to the pure lyricism, as an artistic protest against the roughness of modern life and the absence of values and pure sentiments.
