    Default Name of this piece?

    Hello,

    I was in Corfu around 2 weeks ago and attended the fantastic Varkarola festival. They played a piece of music throughout which I thought I recognised and I have a feeling it may be from a film (I apologise if not and I've posted in the wrong area!).

    Here is a rather bad clip from the festival but the music is still audible:

    If anyone knows the name of the piece could they please let me know as I've been searching for it for the past week!

    Thanks,

    Says Evánghelos Odysséas Papathanassíou aka Vangelis if You click the more info tag with the video! And my wildest guess is that You wont get closer then that, I Remotely recognize it as the sound track to the film; 1492 (Conquest of Paradise), but I could be wrong...

    Thank you for your lightning quick response!

    They actually played 'Chariots of Fire' during the firework display at the end (after setting a raft on fire whilst reenacting the shipwreck of Odysseus). Perhaps I should've searched there in the first place given that it has that sound written all over it.

    I shall have to check out the film 1492, unless of course you can confirm that it's not worth the effort!

    Thank you again

    It is well worth the effort if You dig Vangelis and/or historical costume dramas, or sea based action!
