Editors’ Notes Vangelis’ music is synonymous with space—the symphony Mythodea was composed for NASA’s 2001 Mars mission, and his 2016 album, Rosetta, was borne from the Rosetta mission to explore a comet. Here, he performs 11 original works on piano and accompanying synthesizer, inspired by nighttime and his passion for space, including the beautifully lilting “Through the Night Mist” and delightful “Nocturnal Promenade.” The film composer also visits some of his most renowned soundtracks, with contemplative reworkings of "Main Theme (From ‘Chariots of Fire’),” “Love Theme (From ‘Blade Runner’),” and “Conquest of Paradise (From ‘1492: Conquest of Paradise’).” But it’s his pared-down arrangement of Movement 9 from Mythodea that’s the star of the show.
