Mark Matveyevich Antokolski - Franz Liszt - Kendrick Smithyman

Mark Matveyevich Antokolski - Mephistopheles

Franz Liszt - Mephisto Walzer 1-   

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra


Kendrick Smithyman - Mephisto's Serenade

Reasonable, strange:
        think, that must be the case
        for you if vows exchange
        truth and ardour. Pulses chase
when discretions blow as winds head
west north east and south above your bed.

        Marguerite, listen …
        illusions may intend
        to treat you well, but kissing
        can prescribe another end.
Be most private soon. Prepare your bed.
Time has desires on your maidenhead.

        Stealthily the poor
        scowl in your direction
        as you go by demure,
        our godly man’s distraction.
Slip a squeaky latch. Fold back your bed.
Perfume your plump body. Primp your head.

        Who through the window?
        Who, by the door?
        Who sighs in the shallow
        porch, in the narrow
        hall, crosses the floor
towards you? Curl snug. Turn your head.
Do not deny the stranger your bed.

"Be the Best...Be the First...Be You"

"there are no spaces between our dreams..." -I was born in Athens, Greece and I started my musical odyssey by listening to all types of music and writing songs, from a very young age (…kind of the way most of us get hooked in music!!!) Soon I began taking lessons in classical guitar and music theory and it wasn’t too long that I realized music will be the way of life for me. My musical interests were always omnidirectional, so my studies included acoustic and electric guitar as well as classical and jazz piano. Then moved on to Theory of music, Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue, Orchestration, Instrumentation of Concert Band and Composition. During the last few years I mess around with music technology (mixing & mastering, production, electro music), collaborating in Greece and abroad. Also I am teaching music for the past twenty years(…!!!). Through my teaching experiences, I learned that music, is much more than a profession; it is mainly a common language that satisfies the human need for communication and not only can expand the understanding of our existence but it can reach deep into our souls.
