Donation of Archive of composer Maria Kalogridou


The library’s collection was enriched by the donation of the Archive of Maria Kalogridou (1922-2001) which includes handwritten scores, recordings on magnetic tapes and documents pertaining to the composer’s life.

Maria Kalogridou studied piano at the Hellenic Conservatory and later at the Conservatory of Athens with Spyros Farantatos and Marika Papaioannou (1950, piano diploma, 1st prize). She studied composition with Tito Sprea in Rome (1952-55) where she also worked on music for children’s ballets and the composition of small pieces for piano.  During the period 1955 – 1967 she lived in London and studied piano with Harold Craxton.
