VASSILIS TIGGIRIDES Born in Athens in 1960, he commenced classical guitar studies in 1974 and graduated in1987. In the same year he also graduated from the Athens University Law School. Apart from numerous guitar master classes, he has also attended early music courses under P. Adam. His public performances include both solo recitals as well as chamber music concerts. He has also broadcasted on Greek National Television and Radio. He works as a classical guitar teacher. His first recording is «Works for violin and guitar» by Chrysanthos Mouzakitis. His first solo album, "Lend Your Ears To My Sorrow” (released in 2005), contains early music played on a 7-string guitar. Desirous of a more authentic approach to early music, he has moved on from the classical guitar and is currently playing the Baroque lute. His main lute teacher is Nikos Panagiotides. He has also attended courses by Christopher Wilson, Andrea Damiani, Paul O’Dette, Thor-Harald Johnsen & Rolf Lislevand.
