1. Thessaloniki Period

Many thanks to Spyros Soufis for his several corrections and completions of this and the previous list.

Composition I, April-July 1995, piano. 5 variations on a greek carol song ("Καλήν εσπέραν άρχοντες"). The pieces II-V are 12-tone and the 1st one is based on a self invented "filter"-technique. The five pieces have the following structure: I: monophonic-homophonic, II: polyphonic, III: chorale, IV: recitative, V: air. First performed by me at the concert in the State Conservatory Thessaloniki, May 1997 (same concert: Composition 1/5 and IIIb). The recording is from this concert on the pages of the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki. Facsimile | Recording

From the same period dates the orchestration of the greek folk song "Samiotissa" for wind band (March 1996).

Fuge und Walz, August 1996, piano. I composed the 12-tone Walz in some hours in a bus, traveling from Thessloniki to Vienna on a concert tour. My model was some piano pieces for sight reading by A. Apostolidis. After returning to Greece, I composed the fuge using the chromatic row.
