      Description hide

      A wonderful collection of songs from the Greek musical traditions, played on the lyra. The beautiful arrangements cross the borders with jazz and other styles in a very natural way.

      Sokratis Sinopoulos about his new album: ‘Under the Rose Tree is a selection of my most beloved tunes and instrumentally arranged songs from the Greek musical traditions, characteristic examples of the music of my place of origin which I have always considered a benchmark for my musical aesthetics and a point of departure for my musical explorations.’

      Sinopoulos is equally comfortable crossing genre boundaries into jazz and classical, as he is to staying true to folk traditions of Greece and Eastern Mediterranean. He encourages his musicians to improvise freely and find musical common ground rather than trying to adhere to any specific genre of music.

      The twelve tracks on this album are all traditional and arranged by Sinopoulos.

      The album was recorded live in Tropentheater (Amsterdam) in 2010.
