Reviews of performances and recordings by Apostolos Palios
…pianist Apostolos Palios performed a very fine recital playing exclusively works by Rachmaninoff…included among the most remarkable soloists of new generation, Palios shines particularly at romantic repertoire… Full sound, noble emotion and excellent musical perception defined once more outstanding interpretations…rich tone palette και narrative flow…expressive piano playing…at the performance of the difficult 1st sonata impressed the clarity of the finest structure as well as the technical safety of the complicated piano script. The concert closed ideally the melancholic and thoughtful «Elegie»…

…2 pianos recital by Stefanos Nasos and Apostolos Palios, brilliant musicians, who face monternism as a natural choice….American minimalistic works were performed with intrepidity, precision and confidence.

…The constantly rising pianist Apostolos Palios demonstrated once more his positive reception, performing the demanding piano sonatas by Scriabin and Rachmaninoff with masterful ability but also with expressive maturity…he conserved the lyrical atmosphere of the works without sacrificing the difficult passages of the piano script.

A wonderful piano recital by Apostolos Palios, one of the most exciting Greek artists…he achieved a flawless performance…consistent alternations between soft colorations and intense uplifts…his musical line full of consistency based on right approach of the music spirit…naturalism and credibility…

Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, performed by Apostolos Palios, found their ideal interpreter!…He approached the first 3 piano sonatas by Scriabin and the 2nd piano sonata by Rachmaninoff with clear, glassy sound offering his audience with great inspiration and pure lyricism everything that words couldn’t reveal. Bravo!

…the 2nd piano concerto by Chopin performed the acclaimed pianist Apostolos Palios with beautiful sound and early-romantic perception…his encore, a nocturne for the left hand by Scriabin was literally poetry!
