Renown International Concert Pianist


Janis Vakarelis

“One has to keep his name in mind” - this remark has been the quintessence of many concert reviews since the early eighties. The Greek pianist Janis Vakarelis, who was born in Thessaloniki, passed his examination at the Music Academy of Vienna with honours and afterwards continued his studies with Nikita Magaloff and Maria Curcio. Repeatedly his interpretations have met with outstanding response: “Pianist Vakarelis debut is a triumph” (Chicago Sun), “... a revelation... a mixture of Alfred Brendel’s intelligence and Vladimir Ashkenazy’s touch.” (Tribune de Geneve). “This was Brahms playing of an extremely high order.” (The Times).
