The world famous Zorba the Greek soundtrack was written by Mikis Theodorakis for the British-Greek drama film Zorba the Greek, that was released 1964. The music was based on two Cretan songs: “Armenohorianos Syrtos” and “Kritiko syrtaki” who where composed by Giorgis Koutsourelis.
Many recordings of Zorba’s Dance has been done since 1964. This is my piano cover, which is available on Spotify. The piano arrangement was created by Tatiana Papageorgiou in collaboration with Mikis Theodorakis himself.
I have dedicated this recording to my Greek friends.
