Alexis Zoumbas :: Lament For Epirus, 1926-1928

The recordings by Greek violinist Alexis Zoumbas contained on this fantastic reissue are close to a century old, but they sound as though they could've been somehow broadcast from some pre-industrial age even further back. Of course, that's not the case -- in fact, the music here was captured not on some pastoral Greek landscape, but in New York City. But the evocative, mystical quality of Zoumbas' playing takes the mind out of modernity and into the past.
