INTRO: "Technically brilliant Anadolis plunges into a real ecstasy of rhythms and harmonies.  The listener never knows where the journey will lead him: colossal sounding, almost dramatic passages take turns with finely engraved sound cascades, choral-like sound spaces flow into dance rhythms.  One musical idea follows the next.  Sometimes the pianist works with strong contrasts, but often he creates fascinating transitions, in which motifs and rhythms are woven into each other. Next to Blues also Romantics can be heard. Yes, many an improvisation sounds like a free fantasy from the pen of Brahms or Liszt.  Boundaries between genres are non-existent. “ -Die Rheinland Pfalz, November 2013

INFO:NIKOLAS ANADOLISPiano Nikolas Anadolis was born in 1991 in Thessaloniki, Greece. He used to improvise on the piano since he was 4 years old. At the age of 5 and a half he started lessons in classical piano and in 2002 he became a student at the national conservatoire in Thessaloniki. In 2001 he started lessons in jazz piano. He followed master classes with many well-known musicians. In 2004 he won the first prize in the Greek-Cypriot piano contest “Filon”. In 2008 he was awarded the “presidential scholarship” for jazz piano at Berklee University in Boston (one of two scholarships out of 4000 applicants), where he studied for 4 years until graduating in May 2012. In 2009 he was one of five winners of the contest for composition and interpretation at Berklee University. In October 2010 he won the first prize in the prestigious worldwide contest for jazz piano MARTIAL SOLAL, which takes place every four years in Paris, France. He has composed pieces for solo piano, duo with saxophone, piano trio and brass and string ensembles and big band. He has performed at the legendary jazz club Blue Note in New York as opening group for the pianist Michel Camilo; at the Jazz au Chellah Festival in Morocco, the European Jazz Festival in Athens, Greece, in 2012 and again (solo) in 2013 at “Enjoy Jazz” Festival in Germany, performed solo at the 12-points festival in Dublin Ireland and the Philharmonie in Essen in Germany and other places.
