Music of the day

While listening to the radio, a beautiful song came up in the playlist. La vita e bella! I had heard the song in the past but this time I became curious. I stopped reading what I was reading since the orchestration reminded me a  **lot** of a Greek composer. I decided to search more about the composer of the song La vita e bella. His name is Nicola Piovani.

After reading the Wikipedia article my curiosity was resolved in an affirmative way. He was taught orchestration by Manos Hadjidakis, the composer I had in my mind. Here is a song of Manos Hadjidakis. Enjoy both.

It is amazing how an advisor (ranging from academics, musicians to artists, sculptors, to doctors, to plumbers) shapes an advisee. This also explains (awfully) a lot about the society status nowadays. As I am writing this, I remember Dimitris Liantinis who writes in one of his books (roughly) that the reason that plants and animals are below humans is because they have no tutor. Teachers give us the boost to the spiritual world ,the world where true happiness has a chance. Goodnight guys!
