Influenced by Andrés Segovia, guitar music in Greece saw its heyday in the 1950s. Soloist Eva Fampas is the daughter of Dimitris Fampas, a leading figure who was taught by Segovia and helped create a globally admired school of playing which has nourished generations of musicians.

This programme is representative of the new generation of Greek guitarist-composers, with national sounds and rhythms easily recognized in works such as Kyriakos Tzortzinakis’s vividly descriptive Four Greek Images, and the recent Taygetus, dedicated to Eva Fampas by its composer Nikos Athanassakis.
