About the event:

LMS invites you to a piano recital by Nicolas Costantinou. He will be performing masterpieces by some of the leading composers of the past, as well as the contemporary Cypriot composer, Constantinos Stylianou.


More about the event:

The performance begins with the charming Sonata in C major by the Austrian composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Next is the bright and transparent Sonata by the French composer, Maurice Ravel, a neoclassical work full of beautiful melodies and contrasts in sound-colours and moods. Following will be three works by the Polish composer, Fryderyk Chopin. The Nocturne in G minor has a lamenting and heartfelt tone throughout, with a prayer-like middle section. The Waltz in A flat major has the character of a poetic dance and consists of five exciting themes that are dramatically structured into a coherent and fascinating whole. The ever-so popular Polonaise, op. 53, known as “Heroic”, is daring, firm and grandiose. The performance ends with the first Pancyprian presentation of five of the Twelve Preludes by Constantinos Stylianou, which are inspired by various works of art by painters, such as, Piet Mondrian, J. M. W. Turner, C. D. Friedrich, Gustav Klimt and Paula Rego.

Nicolas Costantinou is renowned for impressing his audience with his daring selection of repertoire, old and new, and his ability to perform with extraordinary instrumental ensembles. He has been hailed by critics as ‘…an artist of deep emotions, who is capable of performing music with his whole being and soul…’ (Kaleva) whilst his interpretations have been described as ‘colossal’ and ‘dramatic’ (D. Nicolau).

He has given numerous concerts in Austria, Cyprus, Hungary, Germany, Greece, Finland, France, Portugal, Turkey, Switzerland, the UK and the US and has appeared in prestigious halls such as Wigmore Hall, the Brahms Saal of the Musikverein in Vienna, the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, and the grand Hall of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. He has been invited to perform at international festivals around Europe such as the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival, the Oulunsalo Soi Music Festival (Finland), the Gödöllő Chamber Music Festival (Hungary), the Ledra Music Soloists International Chamber Music Festival and the Kypria Festival (Cyprus). His debut in London’s prestigious Wigmore Hall was received with favourable reviews. He has performed with the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Russian Chamber Philharmonic St. Petersburg, the Budapest Concert Orchestra, the Failoni Chamber Orchestra, and the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra, with maestros such as Konrad von Abel, Juri Gilbo, Esa Heikkilä, Notis Georgiou, Spiros Pisinos, Maciej Zoltowski and Ayis Ioannides.

Dr Costantinou enjoys collaborating with a diverse range of instrumentalists and singers alike. His chamber music collaborations often include internationally acclaimed musicians and singers such as the violinists Vilmos Szabadi, Chloë Hanslip, Nikos Pittas, Wolfgang Schroeder, Kazuhiro Tagaki, the cellists Gustav Rivinius, Erkki Rautio, David Cohen, Péter Somodari, Tytus Miecznikowski, flautists János Bálint, Virginie Bove, oboist Francesco Quaranta, clarinetist Gábor Varga, and the Meta4 and Akadémia String Quartet. His passion for Art-Song has lead to collaborations with singers, such as, sopranos Margarita Elia, Katerina Mina, Zoe Nicolaidou, mezzo-soprano Elli Aloneftou, tenor Christian Zenker and baritone Kyros Patsalides.

He regularly performs works by Cypriot composers in Cyprus and abroad including a number of world premieres. Dr Costantinou has recently performed for the first time in Cyprus Beethoven’s complete works for piano and violin (2013–14) with violinist Nikos Pittas and for piano and cello (2015–16) with cellist Peter Somodari.

Nicolas Costantinou graduated from the Greek Hellenic Academy of Music, the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Szeged, the Ferenc Liszt University of Music in Budapest summa cum laude and holds a Master of Music in Performance from the U.S. Cleveland Institute of Music. Recently, he has been awarded a doctorate of philosophy (PhD) from London’s Royal College of Music under the supervision of Prof. Paul Banks, Dr Julian Jacobson and Dr Jane Roper. His thesis is entitled The Chamber Music of Ernő Dohnányi; Tradition, Innovation and ‘Hungarianness’. He has also studied with Márta Gulyás, Dr Daniel Shapiro, Sándor Falvai, Ferenc Kerek, Tania Economou and Wanda Economou-Constantinou and he has participated in master classes held by acknowledged pianists such as Dmitri Bashkirov, Nicolas Economou, Vadim Suchanov and Ferenc Rádos.
