As a soloist he has performed with the Bremen Philharmonic Orchestra, Canberra Symphony Orchestra, Athens State Orchestra, Thessaloniki State Orchestra, Greek Radio National Orchestra, UK Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra, Murcia Symphony Orchestra and many more.

After graduating from the Hellenic Conservatory and the University of Macedonia in Greece, Konstantinos went on to receive a Master’s degree at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg and an Artist Diploma at the Royal College of Music in London (Professor D Alexeev, I Jones, A Zolinsky). He is currently a doctoral candidate of the Royal College of Music, supported by an Eleanor and Gary Brass Award. His research focuses on the piano works by the renowned Greek composer, Theodore Antoniou, with whom he has a close collaboration.
