THANASIS KARAMINTZIOS

about the music

 

Errante means wanderer.

This music is a travelogue to places that are parts of the composer's history, as well as to places he reached only by his imagination.

The vast skies of the south of Argentina, the cold freedom of Berlin, the unbearably charming melancholy of Budapest and a waltz at the promenade of Thessaloniki, the most beautiful place in the world...

But above all, the road that never ends, the lane that disappears into the horizon. With the vehicle of the tango, the waltz, the songs and the music that creates unforgettable images.
