Antoine Karacostas is pianist of Franco-Greek origin. In 2017, he released his first album, Trails, in which he presented a repertoire of personal compositions and arrangements of traditional Greek songs, influenced by modern jazz from New York and the Middle East; a singular mix with heady lyricism.

With Insulary Tales, he engages his writing in a series of compositions that evoke both stories lived or imagined around the idea of insularity and the rigor of the natural elements, the poetry of the landscapes of the Cyclades and the extraordinary encounters that we make there.

2021, marks the arrival of Gabriel Midon on double bass and, with Simon Bernier on drums and Pierre Bernier on saxophone, a new quartet album is planned for 2023. A luxury ensemble, whose complicity is reflected at each concert.

Jazz Magazine « Révélation ». 

"Le pianiste et compositeur de grand talent, Karacostas (…) affirme ses qualités mélodiques jusqu’à atteindre une forme de romantisme où il nous paraît s’épanouir pleinement".
