“Kostas Grigoreas is one of the most gifted Greek guitarists of our time: modern in his conception of the guitar and deeply cultivated musically. The way he plays my songs from the Notebook, in Tassos Karakatsanis’ inspired transcription, is fascinating, spontaneous and appealing at the same time. I love to listen to him playing my songs. And this is not something that happens to me often.
For this reason I strongly recommend that you listen to him carefully. Along with my music, you will enjoy an exquisite guitar sound.” - Manos Hadjidakis ('The Guitar Notebook')
