Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Euripides wrote The Trojan Women in 415 B.C., but his tragic play about the aftermath of the fall of Troy continues to resonate many centuries after it was first performed. Eleni Karaindrou, best know for her film scores for Ulysses' Gaze and Eternity and a Day, composed this score for a 2001 production of The Trojan Women after being struck by the parallels between the ancient Greek story and the recent situation in the Balkans. Although she chose to use various folk instruments from around the Mediterranean, such as the lyre, an ancestor of the modern violin; the lauto, a Greek form of the lute; and the ney, an end-blown flute, her stark compositions are not folkloric recreations. Instead, she blends the ancient timbres of the instruments with a vocal chorus to create a sound that is not quite modern but not archaic either. Perhaps the best word to use in describing Karaindrou's austere, beautiful music is timeless. --Michael Simmons

5.0 out of 5 stars An atypical and moving Karaindrou June 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you are a collector of Karaindrou's music like myself you will be surprised when you hear this album for the first time,
the Byzantian tunes will sound unfamiliar. Gradually you will recognise her moving notes in those very tunes.
I strongly recomend this album to everyone who enjoys Karaindrou's music. It is quite different than her past work yet very much like her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most beautiful music March 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the most beautiful CD's I have heard. The different instruments used and the female chorus is perfect for this. I do not agree that it is monotonous. Grief in all its forms is, ultimately, exhausting. The music is a gorgeous rendition of loss, sorrow and grief.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking and barren November 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
There are a few different ways to approach Eleni Karaindrou's Trojan Women. One is from a historical context; if you've read the Iliad (story of the war between the beleaguered Achaeans and the besieged Trojans), then this music is the perfect accompaniment to the desolation and destruction at the conclusion of the story. All humanity can relate to the heartwrenching laments and themes throughout the cd.
But if it's so perfect, why a low rating? From a purely musical view, the cd lacks in variety, the same few melodies and rhythms echoing through the sparse choral pieces. Even when the simply breathtaking female chorus breaks in, it can get monotonous. The cuts are very short, but even then they can seem long to the ear. One has to pay close attention to the music in order to appreciate it, which is not a bad thing at all.
all in all, historical context helps the listener appreciate the music immensely. even with the lyrics printed in the booklet, one wouldn't know who the characters referred to are, or what their part in the epic was. It's worth a full listen or two before you decide to invest in it, but keep an open mind and you'll find a treasure contained. Just don't be afraid to cry.
