‘There are few significant reference points in a person’s course of life. As such , I value these four compositions performed in this CD recording.”
With these words Ioannis Andronoglou introduces his second CD recording entitled: Ioannis Andronoglou PERFORMS Domeniconi, Dyens, Yilmaz, in the preface of the liner notes.
The compositions included in this CD have been either performed by the guitarist in some pivotal concerts of his or premiered in Greece.
One of the primary criteria for both the guitarist and our company to select these music works was the strong connection between them and the musical tradition of the East Mediterranean region.
The CD cover was designed ,exclusively for this CD, by Nikolaos Tamoutselis.
“ If you build it, they will come….Especially great players like Ioannis for whom what seems difficult is not” said Mark Depliora, guitar teacher, The Julliard School, New York, 22-07-2023
“ Ioannis Andronoglou, greek guitarist and composer, has given another recital. Sometimes people complain about guitar recitals being monotonous. This is not the case. Andronoglou is a flashy, powerful and passionate player and he takes chances”. Richard Long, Soundboard magazine, 2012
