“Greek myths!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Cassiopeia is a Greek myth and here Rabadan tells the story through a wonderful duet. The two flutes glide their way through elements such as beauty and punishment, mostly in complete harmony but with plenty of flourishes and a lot of notes. The piano part is substantial which adds another dimension to the power of the narrative. Well worth a try.

From the Publisher

Star in this beautiful and moving musical depiction of the Greek myth by the contemporary Croatian composer, Marin Rabadan. In a series of linked musical pictures, he tells the story of Cassiopeia who is vain and boasts about her beauty until Poseidon, the sea god, sends a monster to kill her. Cassiopeia tries to save herself by giving her daughter, Andromeda, as a sacrifice. Perseus rescues the girl and is on the point of marrying her when another suitor arrives. A battle ensues which Perseus wins by holding up the head of Medusa and turning everyone to stone. Cassiopeia's punishment is to be seated forever on a chair among the stars.
