Dimitris Kotronakis has built a reputation as one of the preeminent guitarists of his generation.
His seventh CD, titled "Toryanse" was released in spring 2016 in USA by Soundset Records. This CD contains solo guitar pieces of modern repertory. Most of them have a virtuosic character that goes beyond the upper levels of classical guitar mastery.
No less than the prestigious publication "Classical Guitar Magazine" wrote about Dimitris's recordings, "...the speed at which Kotronakis can 'knock out' some of this music is quite breathtaking...this is a startlingly exciting recording which captures the amazing artistry of a very distinct player".
Besides, the classical music portal "classical.net" wrote, "Kotronakis performs with perhaps one of the most virtuosic techniques in modern times, and a deep passion that make him a stand out in the classical guitar world".
He has appeared as a soloist throughout Greece, Europe, China, North and South America, and he has been awarded many prizes in international guitar competitions.
He holds a doctoral degree from the Musicology department of the University of Athens and he is particularly occupied with the world of guitar in Greece.
