Product Description

Fantasia with Twelve is a study on 12-tone music. The material even serial create a mood that could be

described programmatic and full of suspense. Friendly for the performer and intriguing for the audience.

Apostolos Paraskevas is a classical guitarist and composer as well as an award-winning film director and
producer. He has received multiple international awards for his compositions and was nominated for a
Grammy Award. He is the only guitarist ever to have a major orchestral piece performed at Carnegie Hall
under the direction of Lukas Fossand the only musician who has performed there in a Grim Reaper
outfit. He was the founder and served for 16 years as the artistic director of the International Guitar
Congress-Festival of Corfu, Greece. He is a voting member of the Recording Academy (Grammys).
After his undergraduate music studies in Volos he pursued advanced studies in classical guitar with
Costas Cotsiolis (diploma, 1990) and Leo Brouwer (Havana 1984, 1988), as well as postgraduate studies
in composition with Lukas Foss and Theodore Antoniou (DMA in composition, Boston University,
1998). Paraskevas embarked on a successful career as a guitar soloist and contemporary composer,
achieving distinctions in both disciplines: Grammy nomination for Chase Dance (Bridge Records, 1999);
first prize for Night Wanderings (Lukas Foss Composition Competition, 2000); first prize for Phygein
Adynaton (National Composers Conference, 1997); and numerous prestigious commissions,
performances, and publications. Following teaching posts at Northeastern and Boston Universities,
Paraskevas has taught since 2001 at the Berklee College of Music in Boston (professor of composition
and classical guitar).
His eclectic compositional style arises as an idiosyncratic integration of seemingly conflicting influences
from avant-garde approaches to harmonic structure, form, and timbre, to pop-folk modal and rhythmical
concepts amalgamated into a personal evocative musical language, characterized by rhythmic verve,
melodic grace, dramatic (and sometimes unexpectedly humorous) gestures, and ritualistic or theatrical
elements. The latter feature has also led Paraskevas to the creation of films, notably the acclaimed I
Finally Did It (Gold award, California Film Awards 2010), dealing wittily with Death, a recurring extramusical
theme in his music.
