Mikis Theodorakis’ biography in English can be found on his official website and has been written by Gail Holst. Before I bring you to the Theodorakis website first an introduction.
Curious as I am, always, I searched for information about Gail Holst on internet and was surprised to see that Gail is a woman! I found on Denise Harvey’s (publisher) website more about her:
“Gail Holst-Warhaft was born in Australia but has spent most of her life involved with Greece. She has been, at various times, a journalist, broadcaster, writer, academic, musician, poet, and independent scholar. In the 1970s, while carrying out research for two books about Greek music, she performed as a keyboard-player with Greece’s leading composers, including Mikis Theodorakis and Dionysios Savvopoulos. She is a Professor at Cornell University where she directs a program of Mediterranean Studies.” Read more… , and more here… , and here!
