πώς δεν τα είχα ακούσει τόσο καιρό;

There are 18 études arranged in three books or Livres: six Études in Book 1 (1985), eight in Book 2 (1988–1994), four in Book 3 (1995–2001). Ligeti’s original intention had been to compose only twelve Études, in two books of six each, on the model of the Debussy Études, but the scope of the work grew because he enjoyed writing the pieces so much.[2] Though the four Études of Book 3 form a satisfying conclusion to the cycle, Book 3 is in fact unfinished, in that Ligeti certainly intended to add more,[3] but was unable to do so in his last years, when his productivity was much reduced owing to illness. The Études of Book 3 are generally calmer, simpler and more refined in technique than those of Books 1 and 2.

στην πόλη ανήκω.

όπου ‘χω σπίτια αδειανά
και κλαιν για νοικοκύρη
εγώ τους χτίζω κι εκκλησιά
να κάμουν πανηγύρι

Στο χτεσινό μαγικό live του Διονύση Σαββόπουλο στο Ηρώδειο, ακούστηκε το παραπάνω τραγούδι από τους εκπληκτικούς Αλκμάν.

altered state of mind.

I told my friends, I’m not coming in
‘Cause there’s a good chance I’ll see you leaving with him
I keep my wits because I hate to sin
But you’d be crying if you knew how I’ve been

Now I’m in this altered state of mind
I just don’t know how to leave it behind
Got away with murder this time
And clearly you are doing just fine
This altered state of mind
I just don’t know how to leave it behind

I told my friends I’m headed home
‘Cause I just might lose my mind
And I can try and hold it in
And only hope there’s an ounce of strength to find

Now I’m in this altered state of mind
I just don’t know how to leave it behind
Got away with murder this time
And clearly you are doing just fine

Νοσταλγία.

νοσταλγία αρχαία ελληνική νόστος (=επιστροφή) + ἄλγος (=πόνος)

ο ψυχικός πόνος και τα γλυκόπικρα συναισθήματα που προκαλούνται από την ανικανοποίητη εισέτι λαχτάρα του γυρισμού στην πατρίδα, σε κάποιον αγαπημένο τόπο ή σε ευχάριστες καταστάσεις που ζήσαμε στην παιδική ηλικία.
