“I was born in Salonica”



“This evening’s programme is based on the idea of two of our most important composers and orchestrators of the younger generation: Antonis Sousamoglou and Lazaros Tsavdaridis, who wished to re-compose, in a way, and transcribe in symphonic form, the music from well-known songs of mine. I wish to thank them. They’re the unsung co-stars of this evening. They wrote my songs again, in their own rich staff, but also in my heart. So here we are on the stage of Megaron, with a full symphony orchestra and a mixed choir. My beloved Fotis Siotas and Katerina Polemi will sing with me. Singers and musicians alike, we have Miltos Logiadis as our conductor and we feel happy about it.”

Dionysis Savvopoulos



The programme was first presented at the Heptapyrgion Festival in Thessaloniki, in June 2022.
