Metamorphosis represents a new repertoire for Oboe ; charming and imaginative works of eight contemporary Greek composers. The oboist Spyros Kontos signs the production of his first solo album and the pianist Lito Thomou is working with him in the first performances. The luxurious booklet version (English speaking) was created by Michael Hadjiharalambous (Artemis 1932), and was entirely produced in Dna Lab in Athens.
