The music of Dimitri Terzakis is hard to categorize. It is influenced by ancient Byzantine music, melodic, and microtonal.


Terzakis studied in Athens and Cologne (Germany). His first works were performed in 1969. He made repeated visits to the Holy Mount Athos (Greece) to study Byzantine musical traditions. Dimitri Terzakis is professor of composition at several German universities and conservatories: Berlin, Düsseldorf, Bern (Switzerland), and Leipzig (1994–2004). Currently he lives in Leipzig, Germany.
