About


Dear friends, supporters, music lovers all around the world!! 

I am a classical guitarist and arranger. After the release of my first album “Classical Styles for Today”, I felt the need to present something more challenging and personal to the music world. I am now in the final stages of completing this album, which has taken me four years of preparation and hard work. 

“Six Strings as an Orchestra” is an idea I had some years ago in my effort to enlarge the repertoire of the classical guitar and present a new, innovative idea. The project includes transcriptions of orchestral works played by unaccompanied guitar; works like the “Concierto de Aranjuez” by maestro Joaquin Rodrigo, being recorded for the first time by solo guitar, with the guitar and the orchestra parts being played together at the same time by only six strings.

J. Rodrigo - Adagio (fragment)

The fact that I am a huge fan of folk music has been the most important factor in the choice of this repertoire. Spanish music as well as Argentinian music (in particular the Tango) are naturally very popular, and composers like Joaquin Rodrigo and Astor Piazzolla have been two of their most important proponents. Of course it would be impossible for me not to include a “piece” of the folk music of my own country, Greece. So, I have also chosen and transcribed for solo guitar, four songs by the well-known Greek composer, Mikis Theodorakis.

 A. Piazzolla - Bordel 1900 (fragment)

Track list: 

1-3      Concierto de Aranjuez       J. Rodrigo

4-6      History of Tango                 A. Piazzolla

 7        Libertango                           A. Piazzolla 

8-11   4 Greek songs                    M. Theodorakis 

Any funds raised will be used to defray production costs – artwork, printing, licensing, manufacturing and distribution costs. Any extra funds will go directly into the project.

Risks and challenges

I produced my first album by myself and so I am fully experienced with the procedure. The recording and mastering of the new album are ready, and I have made all the arrangements for licensing and manufacturing. The only thing that remains is your support to help this project come to life!!
