About

Theodore Antoniou is one of Greece’s most celebrated and prolific contemporary composers. His music integrates traditional Greek musical elements within styles ranging from the impressionism of Aquarelle to the virtuoso effects of Entrata, all approached in intuitive ways, and always with an underlying dramatic plot inspired by ancient Greek drama, resulting in the invention of ‘Abstract Programmatic Music.’ This programme was recorded in the presence of the composer, who considers Konstantinos Destounis ‘a phenomenon… a great interpreter of my complete piano works.’

Konstantinos Destounis is regarded as one of the most prominent Greek artists of his generation. He is a prizewinner in many international piano competitions, most notably the Grand Prix Maria Callas in Athens, the Southern Highlands in Canberra, the Giorgos Thymis in Thessaloniki and the Bremen European Piano Competition. His performing career has led him to prestigious venues, such as the Royal Albert Hall in London, La Fenice in Venice, Llewellyn Hall in Canberra, the Glocke Saal in Bremen, the Megaron in Athens and Thessaloniki. He has a master’s degree at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg and an artist diploma at the Royal College of Music in London. Currently, he is pursuing a doctoral degree at the Royal College; his research focuses on Theodore Antoniou’s piano works.

‘Konstantinos Destounis is a phenomenon, a pianist with fantastic technique and exceptional artistry. He performs with deep understanding all kinds and aesthetics of music. I consider him to be a great interpreter of my complete piano works – which he plays from memory, with extraordinary precision!’ – Theodore Antoniou
