 Update me on new releases by Sgouros

Dimitris Sgouros (b1969)

Neither of Dimitris Sgouros’s parents was musical, nor his siblings, yet Dimitris Sgouros was one of the most extraordinary prodigies of modern times. He gave his first public recital aged seven at the Public Theatre of Piraeus in May 1977 and the same year entered the Athens Conservatory where he studied with Maria Herogiorgoiu-Sigara. He graduated with a first prize and gold medal in 1982 when he was thirteen. He also gained a professor’s and performer’s diploma, and between 1978 and 1982 won first prize in four piano competitions, two in Athens, one in Bulgaria and one in Italy. It was in Bologna that Sgouros gave his first recital outside of Greece in April 1981. He then continued his studies at the University of Maryland with Dr Stewart Gordon and at London’s Royal Academy of Music with Guy Johnson, gaining one of the highest marks ever given for his Performer’s Licentiate examination. Two months before Arthur Rubinstein died he heard Sgouros and was reported as saying, ‘I thank God for keeping me alive so that I would be able to hear with my own ears Sgouros play. He is the best pianist I have ever heard, including myself.’
