“Gioconda’s smile” and “Blue”
Creative Lighting had the honor to design the lighting for the recent concerts featuring two of the works of Manos Hadjidakis: the legendary “Gioconda’s Smile “and soundtrack from the Paramount Hollywood production, “Blue”.
These concerts marked the anniversary of an event relating to Gioconda’s Smile. It is 50 years since the work was first recorded and distributed; a digital disc is to be made of the stereophonic recording, since the original stereo master was only released in the American version. This edition comes in a collectors’ BOX with an additional disc, containing the original recording of six of the themes played on the piano by Manos Hadjikakis himself. Being presented to the public for the first time, this collector’s edition constitutes a part of our musical heritage.
