Description

The Chionistra is the fabled Mount Olympus where the crocuses grow and the ancient gods ruled.. and close to home for Greek Cypriot composer Cilia Petridou, who with her family was displaced during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974. CD1 (songs) and CD2 (Chamber works) refelct the happy memories of an idyllic childhood and the horrors of civil war and partition, in deeply felt, Romantically styled works beautifully performed - all first recordings.
