6 pianos – 12 pianists

A loving group of musicians fights the pianist’s solitude and creates a piano orchestra, attempting to redefine the traditional sound of the piano in a new context. Piandaemonium, an ensemble unique in its kind, was founded in 1998 at Domna Evnouchidou’s initiative and originally consisted of herself and eleven former students of hers.

In its 25 years of active presence, Piandaemonium has premiered works by Greek composers written specifically for the ensemble, has presented arrangements of great symphonic works, as well as original works in a variety of pianistic combinations. Some of the composers that already wrote works for the ensemble are: Giorgos Koumendakis, Theodore Antoniou (♱), Vassos Nicolaou, Christos Samaras, Nikolas Anadolis, Antonis Anissegos, Stylianos Dimou, Dimitris Economou, Christos Papageorgiou, Evis Sammoutis, Lina Tonia, Savvas Tsiligiridis.

The Ensemble has performed with great success at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, at the Pallace Theater in Athens, repeatedly at full house concerts in the Thessaloniki Concert Hall (2013, 2017, 2023), at the Little Theater of Ancient Epidaurus within the context of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, at ‘Mousikotropo’ Festival, at the Greek National Opera within the context of the 2017 International Piano Festival, and most recently at the Ancient Theatre of Filippi.
