credentials

 

I was born in Athens, Greece. I studied piano at the National Conservatory
of Athens with Igor Taraschansky and I received my piano diploma having got
excellent marks unanimously and 1st prize. After getting my Bachelor in the 
National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Department of Primary 
Education) I worked as a teacher in public elementary schools. Then I went 
to the Netherlands where I obtained a Master's degree in piano performance 
with excellent marks at the Conservatory of Utrecht, having studied with 
Martyn van den Hoek.

As a performing musician I focus my attention on the 20th century and the  
music of today. I work closely with composers and there have been piano 
works written for me by Nikos Ioakeim, Frank Nuyts, Miranda Driessen, 
Michalis Paraskakis and Katarzyna Szwed.

I perform solo as well as in ensembles (e.g. the Emanon Ensemble, the Nieuw
Ensemble and Ensemble Looptail). Since 2009 I have been the pianist of the 
Utrechts Blazers Ensemble. My collaborations also include projects in the 
terrain of theatre, dance and improvised music. I have played in various 
concert halls and festivals mainly in the Netherlands and Greece and also 
in Belgium, Spain and the UK.

In November 2016 I was awarded the Young Artist 2016 Prize by the Union of 
Greek Critics for Drama and Music.
