Papadimitriou-Aphrodite Op. 8-5T - Product Information

"For the ancient Greeks, Aphrodite was the goddess of beauty and love. In Aphrodite, I attempted to create a romantic and sensual style, which should be reflected by the performer as well. The work should be played with very soft mallets and in the dynamic range of pp to mf. This work is written in A Locrian. The rhythm is slow and very free, almost a piacere."
