Ioannis Potamousis described by the Pasatiempo as "New Colossus of the keys" is internationally acclaimed as a charismatic and passionate performer, known for his captivating artistry and introspective, poetic expression. "Ioannis Potamousis impressed the audience with his powerful and charming performance as well as his ability to create a dialogue with the orchestra", wrote the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger.
Potamousis’ performances have taken him to important international venues in Europe and the Middle East as well as across North America. He has played at the Athens Concert Hall, the international summer festival and, on his recent Middle Eastern tour, to concert halls in Palestine, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
Ioannis Potamousis is a prizewinner of several international piano contests, including the World Piano Competition in Cincinnati (Silver Medal), the International Piano Competition in Santa Fe, New Mexico (First prize) as well as the Beethoven Sonata Competition in Memphis.
Ioannis is also the co-founder of "Pollen-spreading the seeds of music" and has organised on behalf of NSO Symphony Orchestra in Abu Dhabi concerto competitions for young musicians in the UAE.
