Born in Athens, Konstantinos Athanasakos was one of Greece’s most notable wonder-kid pianists since the age of 4. At the age of 18, he was urged by American legend Leon Fleisher to pursue advanced studies in the USA, which led to a series of postgraduate degrees and academic distinctions, parallel to a quickly emerging concert career as an award winning pianist, composer, lecturer and coach of other professionals.
Unwilling to live only the life of an artist, Athanasakos has been directly involved in numerous other ventures throughout the years, including sales, marketing, fundraising, the establishment of new media, sponsorship, and wellness programs.
Sold out concert venues, the Press, Radio and TV Networks as well as some of the most prestigious Universities and Foundations, all have invited him to perform in one or more of his capacities.
A ferociously critical public speaker of anything that does not meet with the highest standard of thinking and execution, he has been repeatedly praised by the media and critics for his insightful interpretations, speeches and writings.
Konstantinos is a citizen of the world, having lived and worked in 5 different countries. An avid chess player, vintage watch collector and old-timer car aficionado, Konstantinos Athanasakos continuous to find the extra time to pursue his numerous interests while ‘justifiably enjoying such adoration and respect from colleagues and expert professionals alike’.
Once the journey begins, you must have the bravery to face your own discoveries.
