He is the best pianist I have ever heard, including myself. He then took off his gold watch and put it on Dimitris Sgouros' wrist as if passing on the torch. Two months later he was dead. Born in Athens, Greece in 1969, Dimitris Sgouros began his career as an 8 year old prodigy at the Athens Conservatory, where by the time he completed his studies he had received every award given. He then continued his studies at the University of Maryland and the Royal Music of Academy of London, from which he graduated with 98% - the highest mark ever granted by the Academy. In 1982 at the age of 12, Sgouros made his Carnegie Hall debut with the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington D.C., under the direction of Mstislav Rostropovich, performing Rachmaninoffs Piano Concerto No. 3. He has recorded 10 albums which are sold in many countries, with compositions for solo piano by Schumann, Brahms, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Mozart and also Rachmaninoffs Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto and Tchaikovskys Fantasia with the London Philharmonic, and Liszts Concerto No. 2 with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Slovenia, to name a few as well as the 1st and 2nd Piano Concertos by J. Brahms with the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra.

This great Russian musician who has spoken of Sgouros as "a miracle - a creation from God" also conducted his London debut at the Royal Festival Hall with the same concerto in March 1983. Later in that year Sgouros returned to the Royal Festival Hall for his U.K. recital debut, and to give the U.K. premiere of the Symphonic Piano Concerto by Greek composer Kalomiris. Sgouros was fortunate to have the opportunity to play for the great Artur Rubinstein just a few months before his death. Rubinstein was deeply affected by Sgouros' playing and declared him the best pianist he had ever heard, which was an extraordinary tribute.
