Dino Mastroyiannis, the eminent Greek concert
pianist who described as "a musical
ambassador of Greece abroad", has pursued a
career
of
remarkable
diversity.
He has appeared in such prestigious concert
halls as the Bridgewater Hall (Manchester,
England), St. Petersburg Philharmonic
(Russia), "Ateneul Român" (Bucharest), or
“Rudolfinum” (Prague) to name a few. He has
performed in many International Festivals and
in historic places, like “Bertramka” (Mozart
Museum in Prague) or the Ancient Theatre
("Odeon") of Herodes Atticus to the frames of
the "Athens International Festival".
He took his first piano lessons by Ely Adam
(tracing back to Alfred Cortot). He is a
graduate of the Conservatory of Athens, where
he studied under Aliki Vatikioti (student of
Friedrich Wuehrer), receiving the Soloist
Diploma with the highest possible distinction
and obtained the coveted First Prize. He continued his studies under the
internationally acclaimed Bulgarian pedagogues Konstantin & Julia Ganevi, who
were students of Heinrich Neuhaus. Further studies in both solo and chamber music
performance in Austria, as well as at the Hanover Music Academy in Germany and
the Sion Music Academy in Switzerland. Mr. Mastroyiannis completed his studies in
piano performance as a private
student of one of the greatest
virtuosi of the past century,
Brazilian pianist Roberto Szidon
(student of Claudio Arrau and Artur
Rubinstein).
Roberto
Szidon
described Mr. Mastroyiannis as
"one of the eminent Greek pianists"
and Paul Badura-Skoda wrote that
"his technical and musical abilities
are up to an international level".
Regarded for his “rich and multisided
technique”,
“artistic
temperament”, “perfect feeling of
the rhythm” and “rare expressiveness” Dino Mastroyiannis is also one of the greatest
performers of Greek music. The most important point until now in his career is his
special collaboration and friendship with the legendary living Greek composer Mikis
Theodorakis. Among many other works for Piano and Orchestra he performed under
tremendous success the world-première of Theodorakis’ 44-year lost Piano Concerto
"Helikon” in Finland on 2005, and repeated the same work as a soloist with different
orchestras in several countries. Mikis Theodorakis wrote about him: “I would like to
congratulate you for the magnificent interpretation of my lost Piano Concerto
Helikon... I believe that your apprehension of my works totally corresponds with their
deeper character, their virtuosity and their mental demands and reflects their
quintessence…”
Recently,
the
Italian
newspaper
“Libertà”
praised him with the
enthusiastic
review
"discovering
the
most
secret
Mozart".
Dino
Mastroyiannis was the only
person from Greece to
whom the International
Organization
"Mozart
2006" (Austria) gave its
written permission to use
their official logo for a very
special and rare series of
concerts, the "Anthology of
music for Piano 4 hands".
Dino has recorded many times for different radio and TV stations all over Europe. He
has also recorded in CD the 4th Piano Concerto with the Catanzaro Symphony
Orchestra. His next CD is going to be released soon.
