The Artistic Director of the "Evmelia" Festival - eminent Greek concert pianist Dino Mastroyiannis, well known as ‘the Music Ambassador of Greece’, has pursued a career of remarkable diversity. Regarded for his “rich and multi-faceted technique”, “perfect feeling for rhythm” and “rare expressiveness”, he has appeared in such prestigious concert halls as Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, England; Glinka Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic; Bösendorfer Hall of the Mozart's House in Vienna; Ateneul Român in Bucharest; Rudolfinum in Prague; Concert Hall of the Presidential Symphony Orchestra of Ankara; Big Concert Hall named after Salikh Saideshev in Kazan-Tatarstan, Russia; and the Lisinski in Zagreb, to name a few. He has performed in many international festivals and in historic places, including the ‘Bertramka’ Mozart Museum in Prague and the Ancient Odeon Theatre of Herodes Atticus as part of the Athens International Festival.
Mastroyiannis enjoyed a special collaboration and friendship with the legendary living Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis, who wrote about Dino that he is "the true Apostle of his works". Among many of Theodorakis’ works for Piano and Orchestra he has performed to critical acclaim, Mastroyiannis achieved tremendous success with the world-premiere of Theodorakis’ “Helikon” Piano Concerto – lost for 44 years – given first in Finland in 2005 with the Mikkeli City Orchestra, and subsequently with orchestras in several other countries. On November 2018 he performed in Istanbul the world-premiere of the work "Zorba the Greek", a jazz arrangement for Violin and Piano, composed and dedicated especially to him by the Russian composer Vladimir Titov.
Mr. Mastroyiannis completed his studies in piano performance as a student of the legendary Brazilian virtuoso pianist Roberto Szidon, student of Claudio Arrau and Artur Rubinstein.
