Suite Jubal for Solo Flute
From the Publisher
The Greek born Krinió Papastávrou received her musical education in piano and musicianship at the Hellenic and Athens Conservatoire in Greece where she graduated with distinction. During the war she attended the seminars at the Institute For The Dissemination of Natural Music, directed by the well-known Byzantologist, Simon Karas and there, became closely acquainted with Greek folk-music. At the end of the war, she won a British Council scholarship to further her musical interests at the University of Oxford where she carried out research into Byzantine music with the late Egon Wellesz.
As a composer she frequently drew her inspiration from Greek folk lore. Many of her compositions, which include the Greek folk-opera “Kleidonas” (The Key), songs, piano pieces and works for instrumental ensembles have been performed on Athens Radio and in public concerts in America, Israel, Ireland and France as well as the United Kingdom. Her cantata “Lazarus” for soloists, chorus and chamber orchestra is based on a folk narration from the Dodecanese, the characteristic point of which describes the events that took place in Lazarus’ life after his resurrection.
Krinió Papastávrou was also a writer of essays, articles on music and philosophy and fiction. A recently completed novel is about to be published in Greece.
