PLATANOUSSA (Village) IOANNINA
Dimitris Dragatakis was born in Platanoussa in 1914. He graduated in violin from the National Conservatoire in Athens in 1939, and in composition in 1955. He immediately revealed a marked inclination for avant-guard compositional techniques, adopting a sort of neo-classicism reminiscent of Prokofiev and Shostakovich. He went on to develop a freely atonal style which gradually became more individual and recognisable, and which combined a wide variety of compositional elements linked, one could almost say crystallised, by a refined instinct for sonorous contrasts.
