Composer and pianist Eleni Karaindrou’s Istanbul concert, Autumn 2012, with the Istanbul Chamber Orchestra: Music and Cinema – Homage to Theo Angelopoulos.
The programme comprised her twenty seven compositions. In the tenth piece, On the Road / The Weeping Meadow, the accordion joined in for the fourth time.
In the twenty-first piece, Dance / Ulysses’ Gaze, he noticed a resemblance between the accordion player and S who used to play the accordion in the school dormitory. S would play the requests of his friends, but, too, entirely different tunes and some that no one had ever heard before.
In the third piece from the last, Waltz of the Rain, he began to think S might have sensed what would or wouldn’t later befall his friends and, because of this, had played those unanticipated tunes.
The last piece of the concert was Eternity Theme / Eternity and a Day.
On the accordion was now S.
