ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ay Amor is a song cycle about passion, duende, dreams, and love. It is a project that follows the musical form of poetic songs as first introduced by Franz Schubert and Robert Schuman. The music of Ay Amor has no particular nationality. It is both universal and Mediterranean in atmosphere. It is poetry imbued with feelings of love and affection. The Spanish language with its gracious and sweet sounds is one of our most attractive languages for music settings. The poems prioritize intense and surreal images, inspired by passionate feelings. Eros gives birth to desire, excitement, absurdity, joy, conundrums, despair, childhood and finally life itself. The tight frame of Spanish poetry from Lorca to Neruda and the others had the effect of freeing my music. The songs differ but the cycle as a whole possesses homogeneity in its sounds, themes, and style.

These songs found their ideal interpreter in Lina Orfanos. In our collaboration she demonstrated a rare interpretive sensitivity, flawless workmanship, and strict professionalism.

Dimitris Maramis, composer


Love songs are about expressing emotions. They are about passion, betrayal, lust and rust. When in love we trust, cry, smile, sweat, throb, dare, sin, fragment, and remember. We might feel the joy of Divine Eros or the utter despair of a crushed love. But do we really need more love songs? My answer is “absolutely!” In our vulnerable times, it is important to offer a song cycle of love that reaches emotional depth. I believe that this is what Ay Amor achieves.
I feel a deep appreciation for Dimitris Maramis who entrusting me with the premiere of his Ay Amor song cycle. Collaborating with him has been a personal and artistic honor. Few vocalists have an opportunity to interpret Spanish poetry set to such majestic melodies. His influence has been enormous and I hope in my own modest way it has been mutual. Love songs are the language of desire and passion. Love songs cannot be contained. Like love, songs have to be shared. Ay Amor!

Lina Orfanos, vocalist
