A peek into an epic past
In this new release, Michael Levy treats us to the apotheosis to date (he should like that interesting Greek word) of his musical and ethnomusicological skill. Combining the Greek Dorian mode (in Ptolemy's intense diatonic tuning), a state-of-the-musicological-art kithara replica from Lutherios in Greece, fascinating melodic and rhythmic playing techniques (all very much in the spirit of what we know about ancient Greek music), and the sensibility of a born improviser, Michael gives us a peek into an epic past which I can't help but think even Homer would applaud.
