What I conceive of as Greek modes, are all the authentic elements, but also those that have been incorporated in Greek music. From traditional and popular music, from Greek and foreign composers and songwriters, to the jazz and rock that accompanied my youth.
Kostas Grigoreas



REVIEWS

"The pieces are exceptionally modern, yet soundly founded upon the great, the 'classical' norms of guitar music that has been written over the centuries"
Georgia Laimou ('e-go.gr')

"But the weightiest evidence (as well as a sound argument) for the 'Greekness' of Grigoreas' works is the fact that he is a Greek musician who wishes to avoid stereotypical formulas and express himself honestly, like a true creative artist�
�Indeed, for example's sake, one might paraphrase the title of his record to 'Guitar in an Exceptional Mode'�"
George
Ε. Papadakis ('Eleftherotypia' newspaper, Athens)

"The final result is seven units of charming music aimed at audiences with classical tastes: clear melodic lines that do not lose themselves in the maze of sophisticated harmonic experimentation, though by no means conservative"
Alexis Vakis ('Diphono' magazine

"Kostas Grigoreas is an eminent guitar soloist.As a creator of works for the instrument he has served for years, he has developed a personal and direct idiom, which brings out both the virtuosic and the timbral qualities of this instrument..."
Pericles Koukos (Composer - Professor of Composition)

"A composer possessing not only a sense of the functionality of contrasts and of the timing in their alternation but also a vision so rich that it requires expressive means of a wider range than that of the guitar..."
George Leotsakos ('Express' newspaper, Athens)

"Both as a guitarist and a composer, Kostas Grigoreas is one of the most serious figures in the field of classical guitar"
Hubert Kappel (guitar soloist - professor at the Musikhochschule, Koeln)

"It would be a mistake to confuse the word 'mode' with the so-called 'dromos' [Greek for 'way, road'] of traditional music. Dissociating himself, as a composer of a multifaceted background, from locality, he functions as an elaborate sculptor of sensations that have been liberated from both passing fashions and tradition-related obsessions."

Argyris Zelos ('Athenorama' magazine)

"In my view, a composer should paint the 'portrait of an era' through the act of composition. There lies his skill. To compose seasons and memories that have been registered in the subconscious, colours and particular styles recorded through the passing of time. To be capable of enclosing in his music not only his own private experience of the present time but also the collective experience of the past.
It is these very elements that I see in the compositions of Kostas Grigoreas, and for this reason his music transports me to another world through guitar idioms formed out of knowledge and sensibility.
Because the guitar needs not so much to run its lonely course as to move (and to interact) through time and, especially, within the requirements of contemporary realism�"
Notis Mavroudis (Guitarist - Composer) - "Athens 98,4 Radio"
