Critic for the CD Album Smaro Gregoriadou plays Nikos Athanassakis Sequences.
“…if there was such a title… the CD of the year…”
“…I confess that perhaps no other CD of classical guitar -among the so many that I have listened to- has never moved me so much… as this one…”
Giorgos Monemvasitis (here)
“…this CD managed to seduce me from the very first notes… “
Dimitris Anoussis (here)
“…five guitar music creations by Nikos meet with Smaro’s extraordinary indeed interpretation talent and the mixture is explosive...”
Thomas Tamvakos (here)
“…I listened to his music again and again… and every time I got even more impressed…”
Aggeliki Sidira (here)
Critic by Chris Dumigan for the works Elxis Suite and Taygeuts Mountain published in the book Greek Guitar Music edited by Eva Fampas.
…the music of Nikos Athanassakis is more dissonant, with Taygetus Mountain being in an allegro 7/8, with a three-voiced opening section that morphs into a violently strummed climactic close a little further on, replete with Bartok pizzicati. His Elxis is another unusual-sounding work in five movements which takes a little getting used to, as the harmony work is very individual and chromatic in places…
