Michalis Kontaxakis, First Prize Winner in the 2005 International Francisco Tárrega Guitar Competition, is considered today to be one of the leading young Greek guitarists. He studied the guitar with Vassilis Mastorakis and Costas Cotsiolis, and at the Robert Schumann Musikhochschule in Düsseldorf. In this recital, featuring a guitar made by Alkis, Athens, he performs the world première recording of Preludios de Primavera (Preludes of Spring) by Joaquín Clerch, and Tárrega’s enchanting Fantasy on themes from La Traviata.

Review By Select Australia,January 2007

A new star in the concert guitar constellation.

In a past life, Kontaxakis may have been a wandering flamenco gypsy. His biographical notes make no such claim, but there is a strong Spanish influence in Guitar Recital, albeit, from the more sombre side of that fiery tradition.

In this life he hails from Athens, often performs with chamber ensembles and orchestras in Europe, and has won many glittering prizes, including being the first Greek to take first prize in the International Francisco Tárrega Guitar Competition.
