Aphrodite's Rock - a mighty sea stack outside Paphos, Cyprus - is the birthplace of the Goddess of Love. A local myth tells that the person who swims around it will be blessed with eternal beauty. If that fails, this music offers an alternative: the sea is present in the middle section, while the legend itself is mused over from the very first note.
Petra tou Romiou (Rock of the Greek), also known as Aphrodite's Rock – the birthplace of the Goddess of Love - is situated on the seaside near Palaepaphos. capital of the island during Greco-Roman times. Palaepaphos (Old Paphos) was visited by Paul the Apostle during the 1st century AD and is now on the UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage.
Aphrodite's Rock was written in Nicosia, Cyprus in late June 2013. From having come upon so much beauty during my visit, such as the jaw-dropping mosaics of Paphos accompanied by the transitional, ever-changing sea, music was the natural result.The first and third part of my piece reflects upon the seducing legend of the birthplace, while the middle section is an attempt to picture the surrounding sea.
