Short bio

Nikos Papadogiorgos is a Greek composer, orchestrator and pianist currently living and working in Paris, France. He studied classical and jazz piano, classical and jazz harmony and took lessons on counterpoint by composer Kostas Varotsis. He also studied film direction as he pursued his interest in visual arts, which may explain why he feels quite at home composing music for picture.   

As a professional pianist he has collaborated with various bands and ensembles and has accompanied many well-known Greek singers.   

In 2004 he started composing his own music. Since then, his love for learning has been leading him further and further as he continues to grow as an artist. He has composed music for documentaries, theater, short films, important public events, corporate videos, TV spots, audio theater CDs, CDs accompanying children’s books and more. 

In 2012 he started focusing on setting lyrics and poetry to music and in December 2013 he won the 2nd prize at the most prestigious Greek songwriting competition. A steady workflow has led to the release of two albums with songs: a studio album, entitled “Staurodromi” (Crossroads), which contains 9 songs interpreted by several well-known Greek singers and a live album, entitled “Nikos Papadogiorgos – 8 songs”, which contains recordings from the concert/play "16 Mirrors".
