Greek guitar soloist and composer Smaro Gregoriadou attempts a redefinition of the classical guitar’s sound and technique through the “Reinventing guitar!” project that she introduced in 2009, based on Kertsopoulos Aesthetics platform of inventions. Her innovative artistic and pedagogical approach has generated enthusiastic response worldwide. As the eminent American critic Mr. Raymond Tuttle put it: “In her own way, Gregoriadou evokes musicians such as Vladimir Horowitz, Glenn Gould, and Wanda Landowska in her willingness—her need, really—to find a new way to express herself and to reanimate the music, without letting innovation become an end in itself (Fanfare, Nov/Dec. 2012).”
