Pianist Panos Karan Presents Bach Around the World Part 3: Quito

November 28, 2020

SURREY, UK – Greek-born pianist Panos Karan continues his Bach Around the World series with part three of this musical journey as he travels to Quito.

He said via email that the capital of Ecuador is “a place of great importance to me.”

Karan continued, “With active volcanoes, green mountains, a charming historic center, and a stunning theatre, Quito is where I first landed in March 2011, before embarking on the very first musical adventure in the Amazon. This is the place that, nine years ago, helped open a new door, the one with the writing ‘Music Can Change the World’ written on it.”

In the video, Karan performs Bach’s Prelude and Fugue No. 3 in C Sharp Major. The video is available online: https://vimeo.com/user10633114.

His previous musical journey to Luang Prabang in Laos featured Bach’s Prelude and Fugue No. 2 in C Minor. The video is available on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/481171823.

Part 1 featured Athens, the city of Karan’s childhood, along with a performance of Bach’s Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C Major. The video is available on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/478699573.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
