“Rosetta’s waltz” by Vangelis


The third of a trio of music videos released by ESA to celebrate the first ever attempted soft landing on a comet by ESA’s Rosetta mission.

Vangelis, the world-renowned musician, has composed this piece of music specially for ESA and inspired by the Rosetta mission. Vangelis’s music is often linked to themes of science, history and exploration, and he is best known for his Academy Award–winning score for the film Chariots of Fire, composing scores for the films Antarctica, Blade Runner, 1492: Conquest of Paradise and Alexander, and the use of his music in the documentary series Cosmos, by Carl Sagan.

Vangelis said: “Mythology, science and space exploration are subjects that have fascinated me since my early childhood. And they were always connected somehow with the music I write.”

  1. πιθανόν να είναι μέρος εκείνου του "νησιού" που ο Τυφώνας απέκοψε από τη βάση του και το πέταξε στη γη, όπως γράφει ο αρχαίος συγγραφέας Νόννος. Η μουσική είναι υπέροχη. Μaybe this is a part of that "island" that Hurricane( Τυφών ) cut off from its base and tossed it to the ground, to the earth, as the ancient writer Nonnos writes. The music is great.
