"Eros", for cello solo, op.28 "Love shattered my mind, like a storm in an oak forest on the mountainside."«Έρος δ’ ετίναξέ μοι φρένας, ως άνεμος κατ’ όρος δρυσίν εμπέτων.» Sappho (V, 47 Lobel – Page) (2005), The work was a commission by the Thomas Tamvakos Greek Composers Archive. The power of love as Sappho poetically saw it and the composer musically hear it thousand years later. In a mystic and romantic-expressionistic as well mood "Eros" is based in a dialectical juxtaposition between the ancient Greek spirit and the contemporary musical thinking. The short citations of the famous Orestes stasimo from the Euripidian trilogy which recurs periodically works as a sacred voice from the past that leads the composer through the centuries and motivates his creativity.  
The work has been performed twice in 2006: by Dimitris Magriotis at "Philippos Nakas" Concert Hall, Athens and by Olga Articopoulou at "EXPO ATHENS" Concert Hall, in the "Anthousa String Festival" receiving a honoured distinction.
In its version for viola solo (2010, op.28b), it has been performed by Andrea Hemmenway in Composer's Portrait, organized by the "Greek Composers Union" at "Hellenic Conservatory" in Marousi in 2010 and in her personal recital at "Vryssaki Hall", Athens Plaka, the same year. In 2019 the work transcribed also for violin solo (op.28c) for the Greek soloist Tania Sikelianou to whom the transcription is dedicated.
