…a poet of the guitar…

Leo Brouwer, for the concert of Elena Papandreou at 2018 Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) convention:

Recently I heard, after some years, Elena Papandreou the guitar soloist, in a great recital.
She mastered not only the performance, but the art of programming! 

It was a joy for me to hear excellence, in music and interpretation. Some
times professionals like her, just rest on the masterpieces repeated
exhaustively...
... Papandreou demonstrates to the public what they want to hear: a wide
variety of good music, no banality and a lot of new stuff. 

Thanks a lot, Elena for your recital!

Roland Dyens for the CD "Elena Papandreou Plays Roland Dyens" (BIS-CD-1366)

It’s a great pleasure and such an honor to see your own music partly recorded on a full CD devoted to….your music. On the other hand, it could be a bit scary too since composers, sometimes, might not be the greatest fans of their own works.
It’s my case...
Nevertheless, thanks to Elena Papandreou and her deep artistry I did not only enjoy listening to her special tribute from Alpha to Zeta but also took advantage of the many unexpected aspects of my music that this outstanding artist has been able to bring out all along the CD, through every tiny part of the pieces selected by her. More than a composer's dream, it’s a real present she did to me actually.

This is indeed what we call talent. And Papandreou is full of it.

Merci Elena.
Efkharisto poli.

"Papandreou plays magnificently...
I haven't been this excited about a new release in ages.
The music is a treasure, the performances magnificent. Get this one."
