Ravel – Cinq Mélodies Populaires Grecques

The Five Greek Folksongs- Cinq Mélodies Populaires Grecques were composed from 1904 to 1906 by Maurice Ravel.

The original composition of Ravel was for piano and voice. Since then it has been also performed by harp and voice, guitar and voice and orchestra and voice, but never from a solo artist. The only arrangement for solo instrument so far is for guitar, and it is made by the Dutch composer Marco de Goeij.

This video was filmed and recorded during the exhibition of the Dutch painter Nancy Kroon, a painter who is inspired by the Greek mythology (she doesn’t paint Greek mythology), at the Mee in Zee-atelier in The Hague, The Netherlands. I hope you will enjoy it!
