(b 1936 )

The Greek composer Vassilis Tenidis was born in Larissa. While studying law at Athens University he also worked at the guitar and musical theory. He has experimented with most genres, including orchestral works, chamber and choral music, jazz, and film scores. However, he has devoted himself mainly to the theatre, writing incidental music for more than 200 plays: ancient Greek tragedies and comedies as well as classical, modern and avant-garde productions.


Among compositions by Tenidis is his Rhapsody of Pontos for saxophone, which draws on folk-music from that region and particularly on the sound of the Pontos lyra.
