Andreas Polyzogopoulos Quartet
a n i c c a
The “Andreas Polyzogopoulos Quartet” was founded in 2006 while Andreas was studying in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. The first Cd “ Perfumed Dreams” consisting of Andreas’ compositions, was released in 2008. The band won the first place in “Motives for jazz” competition in Belgium and performed in the most important festivals and venues in Greece, plus concerts in Belgium and the Netherlands. By performing his compositions Andreas started experimenting with electronics and discovering his own voice inspired by Miles & Chet as well as Paolo Fresu & Nils Petter Molvær.
In 2012 the Cd Heart of the Sun was released. It was a tribute to Andreas’ favourite rock band Pink Floyd and the concept was to stay close to the original material rather than to transform and reharmonize the tunes. The cd received great reviews from Greek & European magazines and the band performed in New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Dresden, Berlin as well as Greece. In 2014 Andreas brings a new band together playing his newest compositions and the record released in 2015 is called “ Anicca “. The electric bass has replaced the double bass and the Greek-mediterranean sound is more evident in the sound of the band.
