Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou was born on March 29, 1943. Greek: Ευάνγελος Οδυσσέας Παπαθανασίου, is a Greek composer of electronic jazz, progressive, ambient and orchestral music, under the artist name Vangelis.


In a career spanning over 49 years, writing and composing more than 40 albums, Vangelis is generally regarded by music critics as one of the greatest composers of electronic music of all time. (From Wikipedia)

1982 Blade Runner Original Soundtrack ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the same release as this, the only difference is that "Vangelis" is also printed on the spine.
"Most of the music contained in this album originates from recordings I made in London in 1982, whilst working on the score for the film Blade Runner. Finding myself unable to release these recordings at the time, it is with great pleasure that I am able to do so now. Some of the pieces contained will be known to you from the Original Soundtrack of the film, whilst others are appearing here for the first time. Looking back to Ridley Scott's powerful and evocative pictures left me as stimulated as before, and made the recompiling of this music, today, an enjoyable experience." - Vangelis (Athens, April 1994)

The first official release (on LP, tape and CD) was a reinterpretation by the New American Orchestra in 1982. Billed as an "orchestral adaptation of music composed for the motion picture by Vangelis", this release consisted of jazz-inspired, orchestrated renditions of the major tracks from the film, but not the original score tracks.

In 1989, Vangelis released Themes, a compilation album featuring unreleased music from several of his film scores, as well as material from non-film-related albums. The album includes the "End Titles", "Memories of Green" and "Love Theme" from Blade Runner, as the first appearance of the original versions of those tracks.

In 1994, an official recording of Vangelis' score was released by East West (Warner Music) in the UK and by Atlantic Records in the US. The album reached the top 20 in the UK album charts.

This release contained a twelve-page booklet consisting mainly of stills from the film.

Antarctica is a Vangelis soundtrack to the film Nankyoku Monogatari by Koreyoshi Kurahara, released in 1983. For years, the soundtrack album was only available in Japan, popping up in other countries as a rare and expensive import, when in 1988 Polydor finally decided to release the album worldwide.
Most of the music has been built around the famous main theme, most prolifically arranged in the first track. Many calm and hypnotic renditions are heard throughout the album, which generally breathes a cold but enchanting atmosphere. (From Wikipedia)

~Vangelis ~ Antarctica~

Vangelis – arrangements, all instruments and producer Raine Shine – engineer Nankyoku Monogatari (南極物語, literally "South Pole Story", released in the U.S. as Antarctica) is a 1983 Japanese film directed by Koreyoshi Kurahara and starring Ken Takakura. Its plot centers on the February 1958 Japanese scientific expedition to the South Pole, its dramatic rescue from the impossible weather conditions on the return journey, the relationship between the scientists and their loyal and hard-working Sakhalin Huskies, particularly the lead dogs Taro and Jiro, and fates of the 15 dogs left behind to fend for themselves.

Vangelis ~ Francesco (1988)

Here: MedFire!

Regia di Liliana Cavani
Interpreti: Mickey Rourke, Helena Bonham Carter, Andréa Ferréol, Paolo Bonacelli

Alcuni anni dopo la sua morte, Chiara e cinque fra i primissimi seguaci del Santo ne ricostruiscono la vita, dalle dissipazioni giovanili alla prigionia nella guerra contro Perugia, la rinuncia ai beni materiali e la scelta di dedicarsi interamente ai poveri e ai lebbrosi, la faticata approvazione della "regola" da parte del papa Innocenzo III, via via fino al miracolo delle stigmate e alla morte.
Liliana Cavani riprende il personaggio già affrontato nel suo primo film, nel 1966, con la "sfida" di Mickey Rourke protagonista. Come allora, un Francesco "scomodo" e un film duro, senza la retorica della facile "poesia" anche se con uno stile un po' più patinato. Rourke non è poi male. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

San Francesco d'Assisi, nato Francesco Giovanni di Pietro Bernardone (Assisi, 26 settembre 1182 – Assisi, 3 ottobre 1226), è stato un religioso italiano. Fondatore dell'ordine mendicante che da lui poi prese il nome, è venerato come santo dalla Chiesa cattolica. Il 4 ottobre ne viene celebrata la memoria liturgica in tutta la Chiesa cattolica (festa in Italia; solennità per la Famiglia francescana). È stato proclamato, assieme a Santa Caterina da Siena, patrono principale d'Italia il 18 giugno 1939 da papa Pio XII. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
