Christos Zerbinos – Miltos Logiadis

    “Christos Zerbinos is one of the most accomplished musicians of his kind. His interpretations are so emotional and every musical phrase is played with expressiveness and musicality. His technique, his flowing virtuosity, imagination and good taste served expressing these hushed confessions.”
    Nikos Dontas, Kathimerini

    “It is certain that those who have loved Manos Hadjidakis and / or his music will love the sounds that Christos Zerbinos and Miltos Logiadis offer us; sounds that are filtered with love, knowledge, respect and sensitivity.”
    Giorgos Monemvasitis, Critic – Music historian

Everyone who loves music written for the theater and film, such as the compositions of Astor Piazzolla, Dimitri Shostakovitch, and Manos Hatzidakis, will love the sounds that Miltos Logiadis and Christos Zerbinos bring us, filtered through love, understanding, reverence, and sensitivity. It is clear that this filtration process and their performance in this program are designed not to show off their virtuosity but to showcase their particular sensibility.
