NOTE
This invitation to listen to the ‘Soundtracks’ for the Ideal Movies of my Imagination, might lead one to expect revelations about scenarios, roles and direction or, at least, hints of such things. But in this case they do not exist: the titles came to me spontaneously and naturally upon hearing these pieces for the first time as a complete whole. In other words, I named them in order to give them a warmer feel than ‘No. 1, No. 2, No. 3’ and so on.
Instrumental music, more than any other art perhaps, gives the composer, the performer, as well as the listener, the advantage of not being obliged to decide about the scenario and the direction. Everything is left in a state of pleasant uncertainty and, consequently, is subject to the arbitrary workings of the creative imagination of men and times. This kind of freedom was my basic motive in setting up this collection; the idea that I would give (clearly and deliberately) both to the performers and the listeners the opportunity to function inversely with regard to the concept of a soundtrack, setting their own random and hitherto non-existent imaginary movies to (my) music.

COMMENTS and PRESS REVIEWS:
---------------------------------------
“Inspired, imaginative works, images with colour, with light. Refined, ingenious, poetic sounds…”
Evangelos Assimakopoulos - TaR magazine

"A composer possessing not only a sense of the functionality of contrasts and of the timing in their alternation but also a vision so rich that it requires expressive means of a wider range than that of the guitar..."
George Leotsakos - Express

“Both as a guitarist and a composer, Kostas Grigoreas is one of the most serious figures in the field of classical guitar”.
Hubert Kappel - guitar soloist, professor at the Musikhochschule, Köln

“His experience as a top guitarist leads things further to the adventure of total communication. To "his" music, the composer can express the soul of the guitarist himself. He finds ways to penetrate the emotion and trigger the body of the listener”.
Effie Agrafioti - TaR magazine

“Grigoreas’ music has a distinctive voice of its own...”
Carlos Bonell - guitar soloist, arranger

“In my view, a composer should paint the ‘portrait of an era’ through the act of composition. There lies his skill. To compose seasons and memories that have been registered in the subconscious, colours and particular styles recorded through the passing of time. To be capable of enclosing in his music not only his own private experience of the present time but also the collective experience of the past. It is these very elements that I see in the compositions of Kostas Grigoreas, and for this reason his music transports me to another world through guitar idioms formed out of knowledge and sensibility. Because the guitar needs not so much to run its lonely course as to move (and to interact) through time and, especially, within the requirements of contemporary realism…”
Notis Mavroudis – Athens 984

“But the weightiest evidence (as well as a sound argument) for the ‘Greekness’ of Grigoreas’ works is the fact that he is a Greek musician who wishes to avoid stereotypical formulas and express himself honestly, like a true creative artist…”
George Ε. Papadakis - ‘Eleftherotypia’ newspaper
