“Much in demand as a popular songwriter during the 1960s and ’70s, award-winning composer George Kontogiorgos has devoted himself to classical music since the 1980s. These three string quartets range from the tonal romanticism and esoteric conflict of Unicorn and the introspective and primal power of "de Profundis", to an ecstatic Byzantine atmosphere of ritualistic devotion and youthfully erotic memories. My Mother’s Violin commemorates painful family history through its most precious artifact, and the archaic scales in Mixitropia create a microcosm of ancient and minimalist modern sound-worlds.”

“The vilonist Hilary Hahn announced the results of the: “In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores” Contest. Over 400 composers of diverse ages and nationalities submitted works. I am delighted that my composition entitled "Before the Rain Starts" for solo violin and piano was awarded a Honorable Mention.”

"To our great composer George Kontogiorgos, who started with the "New Wave" movement. Although he touched scholar goals, he remained modest, spiritual and sweet man. Wishing him a happy birthday today !" Interview by Effie Agrafioti: TAR Internet Magazine - February 28,2011
