Since his highly acclaimed Royal Festival Hall concerto debut before a capacity audience, the London-born pianist Louis Demetrius Alvanis has established an international career and a reputation as a musician of outstanding brilliance and sensitivity, performing in Europe, the USA, the Far East and throughout the UK; in London he has played solo recitals in the major concert halls such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Fairfield Halls, St John’s Smith Square, Wigmore Hall and Barbican Hall. His performances have been broadcast widely, such as on BBC Radio, Classic FM, NTV Japan, Polish Television and Radio, ITV, Swiss Television, French Radio, Netherlands Radio, ERT, CBC (Greece and Cyprus), Radio New Zealand amongst others, in addition to North America’s classical music radio network.

The Daily Telegraph critic described his playing as "a truly astonishing fire and force" whilst the Evening Standard reviewer wrote "Amid shimmering right hand chords, Alvanis picked out essential melodic lines and daubed them onto the evening, like a graffiti artist out on a spraying spree. His touch was magical. The music swelled powerfully and the piano roared... the sound is with me still”.

His CDs appear on the Meridian and Brilliant Classics labels, both featuring Alvanis’ bestseller album of the complete Hungarian Dances by Brahms. Following the release of his CD of Chopin's Three Piano Sonatas, Fanfare Magazine, USA commented “This is playing of a gifted and greatly cultivated Chopin pianist. Alvanis is an artist who makes most other pianists sound a wee bit routine” with the publication rating his interpretation of Chopin’s Piano Sonata No.1 as the best available recorded version of the work.

Louis Demetrius Alvanis is a Steinway Artist.
