"CD: Sinopsi. I very much enjoyed listening to it, and have been sharing it with my friends and colleagues. Personally, I enjoy "I Foni Tis Lismonias" and think you have an excellent singing voice. Also, I found your setting of "Piano" by D.H. Lawrence to be quite interesting. Your compositions are filled with unexpected yet choice harmonies. But I think everyone, including myself, to be intrigued by "To Yiasemi" as we don't hear much Cypriot music, and it was a fresh sound to our ears."
-Thomas Schuttenhelm, USA

“He proved himself to be an exceptional guitarist, composer … delved deeply into the style and interpretive aspects of the music. His performances as a Masters degree student were of the highest caliber while his compositions proved his rare talent on the field…he taught both with enthusiasm and self-reliance.”
-Jerry Willard, USA

Live performance of Iannis Xenakis’ “Oresteia – Aeschylus Suite”:
“…it was a rare experience that we had the chance to enjoy for the very first time in Cyprus. Mathematics, philosophy…connections, theories, ideas and achievements from ancient years to present, an essence of human culture. All these belong in logical rules and can be automatically translated in sound – symbols. In contrast to “conventional” music which doesn’t need explanation and you just enjoy it, this music creates an irresistible urge to seek, to “dig deeper”, a thirst to discover what is hidden behind every sound. The bet seemed difficult for the participants…However, as a mathematical theorem which happened by mistake, everything seemed to function smoothly and the spirit of the big experimenter sounded in every single corner of Strovolos’ Municipal Theatre, offering a satisfying dose of “stochastic music”. An unforgettable experience for the participants. It was well worth the effort.
