The great lyricist passed away on Sunday, February 6, leaving behind an unfilled void.
The Greek song is poorer as of today (6/2) as the Marianina Kriezi.
The lyricist, who had written the songs of the legendary radio show “Edo Lillipoupoli”, left her last breath in age 0087 spreading years of sadness in the art world.
“We will miss”
As soon as she was informed of the news of her loss, the Minister of Culture and Sports Lina Mendoni made the following statement:
“Through the simplicity of her lyrics, Marianina Kriezi's poetic speech overflowed with sensitivity, personal experiences, ingenuity, humor. Elements that also characterized her theatrical texts, her books, her radio presence. Her unpretentious writing was identified with the great “Lilliput” of the Third Program of Manos Hadjidakis, to be later connected with the avant-garde, pop, art, folk music. Undoubtedly, Greek song owes to her and the immediacy of her lyrics, an important part of its renewal in recent decades. We will miss the sincerity of her feeling, but her songs will continue to move us. I express my heartfelt condolences to her family and many of her friends. “
The Deputy Minister of Culture and Sports, Nikolas Giatromanolakis, noted the following:
Lyricist, author of children's books, radio producer with such a distinct style and color, indelibly painted our memories creating the magical universe of “Lilliput”, as her songs will remain indelible for future generations. Warm condolences to her family “.
