“The three Debussy Preludes with which Konstantinos Destounis opened the concert were played with all the light and shade that allowed them to speak so eloquently. Les collines d’Anacapri had all the subtle colours that are so apparant to anyone who has caught the funivia to this magic spot in the bay of Naples.Some very refined playing where the ending for the first time seemed to make such sense without hitting out the last rays of sunshine which is so often the case in lesser hands. The Girl with the flaxen hair was played simply with beautiful tone as Debussy obviously intended for this simple lass. Feux d’artifice showed of all Konstantinos’s quite considerable technical baggage.The final glissando leaving exactly the air smelling of fireworks on which floated in the distance the french anthem.
This led the way for a virtuoso account of that old war horse that is Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz n.1.Here is was given a very clear account played with great taste and never allowing the great virtuoso feats to outway Liszt’s musical intentions.The occasional added bass notes opened up the piano sound even more just as Rubinstein used to do in public.Margherite was given all the time to sing and seduce in a beautiful interlude before the partying took over with quite overwhelming sweeps of sound ,The trecherous octaves were very clearly played and the double octaves at the end took our breath away as Liszt obviously intended.”

“All the aspects and feelings of Theodore Antoniou’s music are very clearly transmitted to us by Konstantinos Destounis, the possessor of an extremely sophisticated virtuoso technique… suffice to repeat what the composer says: Konstantinos Destounis is a phenomenon.”

“Destounis’s ardent, vivid and colourful pianism only enhances my positive response to Antoniou’s music, together with the composer’s justifiably enthusiastic endorsement.”
