MICHAEL BRIGHT 30/08/2010
Question Dear Sir/Ma'am: I am seeking a piece of data on the famous Greek composer, NICHOLAS ROUBANIS. Mr. Roubanis was born in Greece on Jan. 14, 1885. He is the composer of the classic 'Misirlou'. He worked for awhile in the U.S., circa 1920s-'40s. Question: Can you kindly inform me of the DATE on which Nicholas Roubanis DIED? Likely it was sometime in the 1950s or 1960s. My efforts to find this data via the internet have been to no avail. But as he was a renowned composer in Greece, perhaps you'll have access to this info. Thank you very much for your time. Looking forward to hearing from you at your convenience, I remain, Sincerely, MICHAEL D. BRIGHT

Question One recent summer night in the south of Crete after a late dinner outside the songs began.

For two years I've tried to bring the melody or a fragment of the lyrics into my head. (Now in trying to research it online I've read that "Xartino Fegari" was Hadjidakis's first composition.)

Scott Griswold 21/02/2006
Question Dear Sir, I'm not sure if you can help but it's worth a try for me. My name is Scott Griswold, my wife's is Meghan, and we live in upstate New York USA, near Rochester. We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Greece where we visited Meghan's cousins. The one cousin by the name of Marika Chrysanthopolis(family name) was an incredible pianist. She had received a scholarship to attend school in Vienna, but that was cancelled due to the war. She continued in Greece, and when I heard her, I was in awe with the level of her playing. I play the piano, I'm a part time voice student, and spend time at the Eastman School of Music, so I hear a large number of very fine pianists. Marika is 84 and can still play with the young piano students! Needless to say, it was quite a thrill. This leads me to my main question. I played a cassette of her playing music by the composer Spanos. It was very haunting and beautiful, but unfortunately she had loaned out the music and it was never returned. I assumed I would be able to locate it on the internet, but have been unable to so far to date. I would dearly love to purchase some of it, not only for it's beauty, but also for sentimental reasons. Marika gave me the names of three of the songs: Because I Love You; This Summer; and Aristotelous. Can you point me in the direction of someone who deals in this sheet music? Also, I never thought to find out what his first name was.There appears to be a Giannis and a Yiannis. To her, he was a very common composer. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Most sincerely, Scott Griswold

Question Thanks for your patience. I see know through my very poor knowledge of Greek that Aristidou Kointilianou is also known as Aristides Quintianus. As for the other reference, Xenakis' original french citation lists: Stichiodi Mathimata Byzantinis Ekklisiastikis Mousikis, Avraam Evthidiadis, O.X.A, Apostoliki Diakonia, Thessaloniki, 1948. I'm still having trouble locating information about this text. Thanks! and best, Charles Turner

Mike Soloway 21/05/2004
Question Hello, I wonder if you may be able to help me find a solution to the following problem. I am an American musician and songwriter. Last year, while I was working as a school bus driver my good friend and fellow bus driver was a Greek man. In my friend's honor I composed a song for children in which I wrote my own words to the melody of the "Misirlou". I called the song "The School Bus Driver Misirlou". I believed that the "Misirlou" melody was a traditional Greek melody (possibly a song known as Μισιρλού) which was in the "public domain". I thought that I could write words to it and record it without any problem. Now I am not so sure. I would appreciate very much if you could send me any proof that the melody of the "Misirlou" existed before 1923. This proof could be any presentation of the "Misirlou" melody such as sheet music, songbook or recording that existed before 1923 (a copy, of course). I thank you for your consideration of my question. Yours truly, Mike Soloway ADDRESS: Mike Soloway 14 Bouton Place Huntington, NY 11743 USA EMAIL: msoloway@optonline.net TELEPHONE: 631-549-4866

Question Dear Librarian, I reside in the USA, Pennsylvania State together with my wife Sirma Hristou Koutzaki and daughter Kristina. We attend here the local Greek church St Sofia (the web site is: www.stsophiavf.org). Our daughter participates in a Greek Dancing group at St Sophia Church. The Greek Dance Teacher is very good, but our recordings of Greek “Horus” are in a very bad condition. They are barely audible. Searching on the Internet for a source of Greek dance folk music, I encountered the Lillian Vuduri Large Musical Library of Greece. I have searched the electronic catalog of the library, and I have realized the enormous wealth of Greek Folk Music, which is preserved at the library. I would like to kindly ask is there a way we can obtain or buy copies of particular recordings, which are held at the library. We are interested for example in the UPC/ISMN = ML 0179 Lyra, but there are also other interesting recordings, which do not have an assigned ISMN. I will very, very much appreciate your advice. Thank you very much for your help. Volen Nikolov
