Reviews of performances and recordings by Apostolos Palios
While defined by technical perfection and virtuoso nonchalance, Palios’s take, above all, brings along a sense of musicality which adds unique character to each piece he interprets.

Apostolos Palios possesses the art of self-control: his articulation is enviable, his phrasing interesting, his playing full of musicality. He does not remind the interpreters, who just show their technical virtuosity, but is honest servant of his art. At the same time he does not hesitate to choose very demanding works and be compared to the greatest masters, which honors him.

Apostolos Palios is an artist, who possesses the gift to inspire as a conductor…

Huge compliment for the pianist Apostolos Palios, really a decoder of countless details... playing with a bright ethereal sound and sensual mature when needed.

Palios interprets with artistic mastery and ably comfort but above all with musicality, giving each work its distinctive character.
Nikos Dontas, Kathimerini 04.02.2011
Greek pianist Apostolos Palios, having an excellent level in piano concerto No.1 Op.1 in F sharp minor by Sergei Rachmaninoff, pretty sure in a lot of masterly passages, conveying a sense of great lyricism in Andante and interpreting with very high taste throughout the score, won the enthusiastic applause of the audience, which responded by Palios playing the "Elegy" from Rachmaninoff's youth works.

Palios has deepened in the spirit of the composer and clearly demonstrates the musical ideas serving the descriptive nature of the composition... He has all the safeguards to conquer the international arena of discography.
Liana Maladrenioti, Epochi 14.01.2011
The performance by Apostolos Palios shows great dynamic range, clarity, and musical fervor especially appropriate for the passionate music of his fellow-countryman. He also manages to make the involved harmonic idiom of Margaritis’s later works interesting and exciting.
