ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Theofilos Sotiriades was born in Thessaloniki (North of Greece) and graduated from the Faculty of Psychology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. From an early age he introduced himself to music by playing classical guitar and after a short “roaming” as an electric basest in various young rock groups of his hometown, finally he dedicated himself to the art of saxophone.
He graduated from the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki with the degree of the highest distinction (class of Vassilis Vradelis) and then as a scholar of the Foundation of the Greek State Scholarships, he studied in the “\'Ecole Nationale de Musique de Créteil” in Paris, in the class of Georges Porte (first prize and special distinction about the interpretation of contemporary music). During his residence in France he won prizes in the European Music Contests “Picardie” and “Leopold Bellan”.
As a professional saxophonist he realized concerts in Europe, Ukraine and USA, and participated, as a soloist, in the famous French Quintet of Saxophones of Paris, Louisiana Sinfonietta (USA), Neuchâtel Chamber Orchestra (Switzerland) and the State Symphony Orchestra of Thessaloniki (Greece).
Distinguished contemporary Greek composers have dedicated some of their works to him and he performed their world premieres (more than thirty). As a result of his deep interest for the promotion of the Hellenic music for saxophone, he recorded two compact discs: “Recollections” and “Theofilos Sotiriades and friends. Music for saxophone by Dinos Constantinides”. He also recorded American contemporary music for Newtertian Recordings and Magni Publications. As a researcher, he is actually completing a catalogue of all the saxophone works written by Greek composers.
Moreover, his artistic creativity covers a wide range of activities: artistic director of the Hellenic Festival of Saxophone and the Macedonian Saxophone Quartet, founding member of the Hellenic Association of Saxophone and creator of diverse ensembles: “Panas Duo” (saxophone & dance), “The guitarphone of Adolf Sax” (saxophone & guitar), “Aegean Duo” (saxophone & piano).
Passionate about teaching, Theofilos holds a position in the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki, the \"Music College\" Conservatory and teaches as a guest professor in the “Brache International music Days” (Germany). His obsessive belief about the social and educational dimensions of music as a mean for the improvement of our human life comes true as a long-term and strong collaboration with the UNESCO Chair of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the creation of the “Khou Khoux Sax” orchestra (youth, non-professional saxophone orchestra).
Recently, he completed his master’s degree of Music Performance from the studio of Dr. John Sampen in Bowling Green State University while he was working as an assistant professor of saxophone at the same institution.

Angelos Botsis

one of the best saxophone cds I have heard
We mostly consider the saxophone as a Jazz instrument but this is a completely different approach.The repertoire is as contemporary as one can get and yet not for a moment gets dull or boring.On the contrary Sotiriadis with his velvet-quality sound and virtuosic technique creates a charming-esoteric musical landscape that you want to visit again and again! I also liked the artwork and specially the cover photo.
