Starry Night”, I composed this piece years ago, played by Yiannis Hadjiloizou. We were doing a soundcheck in Canada (in 2015 for Yiannis & Aliki’s concert) and I introduced my piece to Yiannis and asked him if he’d like to play it. Of course, being a great friend he jumped at the occasion. @yiannis.hadjiloizou

One day, I will collect my music, gather some talented musicians and make a private ”family concert” 🙂

Piece: Starry Night

Alexis Lontos Leonidou composed the piece “Starry Night” years ago. The piece was composed for piano and in this video, was performed by the talented pianist Yiannis Hadjiloizou / Γιάννης Χατζηλοΐζου, who was touring at the time with soprano Aliki, during her Awakenings Tour. This particular video was shot during a soundcheck before Aliki’s performance in Canada.
