Yiorgos’ passion is solo improvisation in the steps of Keith Jarrett. He has performed in all major concert halls in Greece (among them the Megaron Athens Concert Hall and the Onassis Cultural Center) as well as France, Denmark, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Dubai to a great acclaim by critics and audience alike. His solo performances are deeply sentimental and technical at the same time and have been characterized as an amalgam of film, jazz and classical music.
Apart from his career as a solo improviser and classical pianist he has also been occupied with Jazz combos, from trios to octets, nowadays recognized as the leading Greek Jazz pianist performing with the Yiorgos Psihoyios Jazz Trio.
