In stock


Antifrost proudly presents the soundtrack from Costas Athousakis’ dreamy film ‘Persephone’, a Greek-Japanese Cine-Operetta based on the ancient Greek myth of the Abduction of Persephone. The music on this soundtrack is a collection of peculiar arrangements of classical tunes such as Gabriel Fauré’s Pavane, Camille Saint Saëns Danse Macabre and Franz Schubert’s Serenade as well as Japanese popular songs Li Hi Tabidachi and Kosumosu all scored for cello, yamaha portasound and voices. Excerpts from the film’s original sound and dialogues complement the release. The music is arranged and performed by Nikos Veliotis paired with the Japanese women chorus (Yumi MIZUGUCHI, Asako UCHIMURA, Masako OGURA, Misa MORI, Yurino OSHIMA & Rii MINAMI) from the film’s original cast.
