Sometimes (not very often…) the stage Director is giving us a 3 minutes break – a fantastic opportunity for our great pianist, Benjamin Chatzikoumparoglou to play with his favorite toy…

In the era of digital kingdom, where life happens in high speed velocity, we seem to have forgotten about the most essential element in the Art of Music: the Melody!

George Hatzinasios’ EL GRECO is here to remind everyone of how music can uplift our spirits, where the Melody is the key factor for the creation of a deep and meaningful communication between our hearts…

Sotiris Triantis – wonderful baritone making small corrections in his partition – Maestro Hatzinasios has never enough of artistic character.

It is such a great feeling, to work on a piece of music which has never been performed… It is like sculpting… or painting… At first you can’t have a clear image of how it will be.. But then..

EL GRECO!!!

This young orchestra, with the first concert in year 2004 is no more “young” – the quality of musicians TPO after a few years of the regular work together is really fascinated even if You know, there are musicians from whole the world and all continents…
