Anastasios Rupert Arthur Mavroudis is a violinist, composer and musicologist of Anglo-Scottish and Greek descent. He is a graduate of the Athens Conservatory and the Royal Academy of Music. He studied with Tatsis Apostolides – protégé of Henryk Szeryng – a champion and dedicatee of many works by Greek composers. He received his BMus and MMus from the Royal Academy of Music where he studied with Lydia Mordkovitch, a prolific recording artist, pupil and later teaching assistant to David Oistrakh. Anastasios was awarded a PhD in Performance and Musicology from Goldsmiths, University of London, for his research on Yorgos Sicilianos’s compositions. He lives and works in London as a performing and recording artist and as a pedagogue. As a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral violinist he has performed in prestigious concert venues, such as the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room at Southbank Centre, the Athens Megaron Concert Hall, Kings Place, and Radio City Music Hall in New York. He founded the Tettix Trio and is co-founder of the Fugata Quintet. The latter has recorded two critically acclaimed albums of music by the Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla that have been used in theatre productions, documentaries and dance festivals around the world. In homage to Leonard Bernstein, he recently recorded an album entitled Classical Americana, Vol. I. Anastasios’s performances have been broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation and Hellenic Parliament Television. In 2020 the Benaki Museum in Athens published his first book “Sicilianos, the Greek Modernist”.
