DIMITRIS FAMPAS (1921 - 1996)
Dimitris Fampas was born on Pilion, one of the most beautiful Greek mountains. After having sailed the seas, he decided to turn to music and especially to the guitar. Andrés Segovia was one of his teachers. He taught for 35 years at the National Conservatory of Athens, where he founded an extremely productive school and became a leading figure of the guitar in Greece. He gave hundreds of recitals in Greece, Europe and North America, made recordings, enriched the guitar repertoire, and worked with great Greek composers such as Manos Hadjidakis (1925–1994) and Mikis Theodorakis.
