22 Oct 2000: Christos Kantarelis

Kantarelis-Okt-2000-pic-sys

By Tony Pothitos

Christos is a graduate from one of the best schools in England and is a true scientist of the musical field. This shows not only in his system, but in the choice of music he chose for us.

Most ACA members only play classical music, but Christos dared to play Cesoria Evora, and Eric Clapton, Nana Mouskouri and Delivorias’s Halia!

This new swing brought a lot of fun into the occasion and the night ended up being a festival of music and incredible listening. Christos has now moved and his new house is a beauty indeed. I do see though that his love for Tannoy’s becoming an obsession since he is so much into the proper English sound. I sincerely do not believe that he will ever change these speakers, or at least not in the next 2 decades for sure.

Christos is a lover of music in all its forms and it showed from tonight’s meeting. I think he would make a great DJ as well. What counted though was the outcome which was musical, fun and LOUD!

The simply looking speaker is not in fact a simple piece of equipment at all. In reality it is the opposite. It represents the best that Tannoy can get to and at a price which is easy to acquire.

I thank Christos for his musical choice and hope that other ACA members do the same in their meetings.

Tonight was a night to remember and as I write these words I still hear Cesoria Evoras voice in my ears.
