Subjective impressions from the Budapest concert.

Part 1. Objective (as much as possible)

First, I am very impressed with the printed program booklet: it includes not only a program with the isting of songs and authors but also the discography of the musicians, plus the names of the orchestra musicians. Plus much more.

Acoustics was excellent and the first time in my life the volume was just right, even in the 1st row (the 1st row was not the 9th or 10th as it happens in reality, but just the 5th, so I had excellent visibility, which helped a lot to form my subjective impressions - since it allowed me to see everything about the audience as reflected on the faces of the musicians - of course, mainly on the face of Dalaras, and also on the face of Melina Aslanidou who looked much more relaxed and sure of herself than other times when I saw her).

The program started from Mesogeiois (not listed) and then proceeded more or less as planned, with some change of the order, and with some other changes: there was no Nihta, Stin Alana and Mi me Rotas - but I fantasia, pou'nai ta hronia, for example, were added). El emigrante I liked very much especially, since this time it had less flamenco flame and more emigrant' sadness. Melina Aslanidou was very good, in my opinion: after a couple of less significant songs she did (very well) Ah Ellada s'agapo - also out of the program. And in the rembetiko part (part 3) she was very much to my taste. Now in reply to some opinions that Dalaras should have selected different musicians for the tour I would say that I personally was convinced once again that he knows what he is doing very well: this type of the concert is for the people, not for the art (I'll try to explain it later for those who is not bored enough), so he does not want a company of stars, he wants those who are best suited for his communication with the people.

Mihalis Tzouganakis did his familiar program - and he had great success with the audience (and with me, although it was not the first time that I heard him). There is an interesting statue in Koeln, close to the Rudolf square. It is a huge ear in stone - some kind of modern art. I was this huge ear listening to Tzouganakis. Somehow I am able to use all my other senses while listening to Dalaras: hearing, vision and even some thinking. Tzouganakis added some raw fuel into the fire. The audience in general was very responsive and inspiring (as I mentioned, judging by the musicians' faces, and also by the voices from behind and applauses of course.

This is the end of the objective part - if you can consider it such.

Part 2. Extremely subjective - and even lyrical. (Read at your own risk.):blush:

There are many Dalarases - according to the type of concerts, which defines his relationship with his own work and with the audience. My impressions only concern this type of concert - for communication with the people, diaspora or not - for those who know that there is never too much of a good thing. Who said that we need new songs? We need an ambassador like Dalaras - ambassador of love. In this type of concert each song has a meaning not by itself but as a single word in a sentence where he is saying: listen, this is a perfect harmony, between me and you, and between you all: each other of you. So, he is all smiles while maybe singing sad words.

Like in "Parapono": Exeis afiseis mia psihi se pagonia kai se vrohi. No, he says, it's a just a joke: none of my people who love me and whom I love can't leave anyone of their own "m'ena parapono pikro". There is no reason to even think about being sad. So, that's impressions of someone very reasonable and sound while listening to another Dalaras concert filled with "old" songs heard many times before. That's why he is a genius.

Επειδή έχω στα χέρια μου αυτή τη συναυλία σε CD (mp3) και (φυσικά) δεν είμαι αυτός που την έγραψε, αλλά ούτε και ξέρω ποιος το έκανε, αναρωτιέμαι αν το παιδί αυτό βρίσκεται ανάμεσά μας... επίσης, όποιος ενδιαφέρεται, επειδή είναι μεγάλη για να την ανεβάσω στη σελίδα, ας μου δώσει μια διεύθυνση email, για να του τη στείλω. Είναι η συναυλία της 29.4.2007, περιέχει 50 τραγούδια και πιάνει χώρο περίπου 200MB.

Shortly in english, I have this concert in CD-mp3 format, and I was not there to record it but also, I don't actually know who did it...I am just wondering if this person is among us! If anyone is interested, I can email this concert of 29.4.2007 to an email address that can accept approximately 200MB, as that is the space needed for the 50 songs that it contains.

Και πραγματικά, ποιος έκανε την ηχογράφηση!!!

Nikolas,

I know your intentions are good, i.e. to share with us the music of the concert. But I would hesitate greatly before doing it for the following reasons:

1) The tour has barely started. Let Dalaras have the chance to finish it first. It is not right and very unfair to him. Besides some places may still have unsold tickets, so who is going to buy them?

2) It is unfair to the people who have paid money and travelled from far away to see the concerts to see this CD given free - and now. Those people still have to wait for their concerts.

3) It is ILLEGAL.

For those reasons also, I would suggest that if members have taken some short videos of their concerts, to wait at least for the tour to finish before posting them. Thank you for your understanding.

If he has it, and wants to share, it is his choice. the quality is probably sub par anyways. People take this stuff way too seriously. I have many Dalaras "bootlegs" and it does not stop me from buying his cds or seeing him in concert. It is a matter of choice.

Now if he uploaded it here..that is another story....

And why not post videos here? it makes no difference if the tour is over or not. I live thousands of miles from europe, and will not see George this year. There is nothing wrong with sharing for those that cannot see him......

On the contrary, nobody takes this stuff seriously. Of course, it is Nikolas' choice as well as anyone else's choice. It is a moral choice each of us has and is free to make.

A few days ago, I read on Google News that the sales of records of Canadian artists has gone down significantly this year, even with the legal downloads. It is their bread and butter we are taking away, simply put, bootleg or not. Where do we draw the line? Stealing is stealing, whether here in the forum or privately.

It is stealing if is an OFFICIAL release. If it is not, and is SHARED, than we all win. This is a good way of exposing artists..and to help others PURCHASE their cd's etc...

Big surprise after the concert!!

There was an official chance for the audience to queue up to see and greet Dalaras and to get an autograph.

I hope youll find the small Dalaras inbetween the crowd:

He obviously enjoyed, but there were a lot of people and it took much time

Η Gabriella με ενημέρωσε για ένα video στο παρακάτω link:

http://www.mtv.hu/videotar/?id=5817

Είναι ένα video 54 λεπτών. Τα τελευταία 5-6 λεπτά δείχνει σκηνές από την συναυλία του Γ.Νταλάρα στην Βουδαπέστη στις 29/04/2007, καθώς και μία μικρή (αλλά πολύ ωραία) συνέντευξη του Γ.Νταλάρα, σε κάποιο κανάλι της Βουδαπέστης.

Ακούγονται απoσπάσματα από τα τραγούδια: Παραπονιάρικό μου, ’λλα μου λεν τα μάτια σου, Φύγε κι άσε με.

Όσοι ενδιαφέρεστε να υποθηκεύσετε το video στον υπολογιστή σας, μπορείτε να το κατεβάσετε από εδώ:

Θάνο, ακόμα δεν σου τηλεφώνησε ο ’γγελος για αναμετάδοση της ''γαλλικής''; :lol:

Πάντως, όπως κι ο Θάνος, δεν μπορώ να το κατεβάσω κι εγώ.

Και πολύ νευριάζω... :huh:
