Prince Nikolaos for piano by Apostolos Paraskevas was written in 2003. Exciting and mysterious bound to increase pianists abilities in so many levels of creativity. 


Apostolos Paraskevas is a classical guitarist and composer as well as an award-winning filmdirector and producer. He has received multiple international awards for hiscompositions and was nominated for a Grammy Award. He is the only guitaristever to have a major orchestral piece performed at Carnegie Hall under thedirection of Lukas Foss––and the only musician who has performed there in aGrim Reaper outfit. He was the founder and served for 16 years as the artisticdirector of the International Guitar Congress-Festival of Corfu, Greece.  He is a voting member of the RecordingAcademy (Grammys).

 

Afterhis undergraduate music studies in Volos he pursued advanced studies inclassical guitar with Costas Cotsiolis (diploma, 1990) and Leo Brouwer (Havana1984, 1988), as well as postgraduate studies in composition with Lukas Foss andTheodore Antoniou (DMA in composition, Boston University, 1998). Paraskevasembarked on a successful career as a guitar soloist and contemporary composer,achieving distinctions in both disciplines: Grammy nomination for ChaseDance (Bridge Records, 1999); first prize for Night Wanderings(Lukas Foss Composition Competition, 2000); first prize for Phygein Adynaton(National Composers Conference, 1997); and numerous prestigious commissions,performances, and publications. Following teaching posts at Northeastern andBoston Universities, Paraskevas has taught since 2001 at the Berklee College ofMusic in Boston (professor of composition and classical guitar).

 

Hiseclectic compositional style arises as an idiosyncratic integration ofseemingly conflicting influences – from avant-garde approaches to harmonicstructure, form, and timbre, to pop-folk modal and rhythmical concepts –amalgamated into a personal evocative musical language, characterized by rhythmicverve, melodic grace, dramatic (and sometimes unexpectedly humorous) gestures,and ritualistic or theatrical elements. The latter feature has also ledParaskevas to the creation of films, notably the acclaimed I Finally Did It(Gold award, California Film Awards 2010), dealing wittily with Death, arecurring extra-musical theme in his music.
