“Paraklisis”, for clarinet solo (1991). The first of composer’s works written in a modern progressive idiom. It is based in symmetry of intervals and their gradual transformation. It is a musical equivalent of someone’s experience by attending the “Paraklitikos Canon to Virgin Mary” a very famous ritual which takes place in Eastern Orthodox Church at August. The work is divided in 7 parts:
b. Prayer Ι (bird song),
e. Dance (mystic waltz),
d. Prayer ΙΙ (recitativo),
f. The Miracle.
In its stage form, the work, includes an introduction with two monastery “talanton”, (a percussive piece of wood, monks use for ceremonial calling) sounding in a canon before the sound of a censer. A narrator recites hymns (“troparion”) from the ceremony between the parts.
The work draw the attention of exquisite performers as Michel Arrignion, Stathis Kiosoglou (first and second
performance in Athens in 1991-1992) and Giannis Sabrovalakis who under the artistic direction of Theodor Antoniou gave a performance at the 3d Sacred Festival in island Patmos (2003). He also recorded the work for a coming up CD production.
In its version for oboe solo (2002), it has been perfomed by Spyros Kontos at "Ionian Academy Music Hall"
in Corfu, in 2010, who also recorded the work for his personal CD "Metamorphosis". http://oboemetamorphosis.wordpress.com/2012/01/18/theodossiou-paraklisis/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gjdfWtEb_M .
