This recording was originally made by Dunelm Records on limited release in 2005 and is now re-released at midprice alongside other recordings by Greek pianist-composer Demopoulos. His rip-roaring reading of 'Pictures at an Exhibition' is a super conclusion to a concert-style program designed to emulate a live performance, with minimal editing and plenty of passion. Panos takes a measured approach to the Intermezzi, the late and piquant works of Brahms; maturity; performs his own reflective and gentle (yet resolutely modern) Farewells and fires up all cylinders for Mussorgsky's masterpiece. Panayiotis Demopoulos was born in Athens in 1977, studied with Margaret Murray-McLeod in Edinburgh before moving to Manchester and studying piano with Murray McLachlan and composition with Anthony Gilbert. He is an active performer both as a soloist and as a member of chamber ensembles.
