Mikis Theodorakis
"I have collaborated with my friend and colleague Mr Kerkezos many times and each time I was given the oppurtunity to appreciate his professionalism, diligence and responsibility along with exceptional musc and artistic abilities all of which render him a complete enterpreter whose main characteristics are his rare virtuosity and ability to put his personal stamp on the works he performes. The release of the new CD "Impressions for saxophone and orchestra" by NAXOS makes me very happy because, firstly, the public all over the world will once again have the chance to admire his abilities and secondly because two of my works that are included, were performed in every aspect with regards to the soloist, conductor, and orchestra in a perfect way.
