Ioannis Vayenas Harp technician
Ioannis, based in Vienna, works mostly in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Greece, but also in other countries. Married to a professional harpist, Ioannis’ work as a technician is also influenced by his own extensive experience as a professional violinist. For seventeen years, he served as Assistant Concertmaster of the National Opera in Ljubljana, Slovenia. As a highly educated and experienced string player, he pays a lot of attention and interest to the matter of intonation. Always sensitive to the player’s perspective, he is deeply aware of the importance of playing a well-regulated and well-tuned instrument.
"I am very lucky to have met such a professional as Ioannis. He is a true master of his craft and always does the job with utmost proficiency. He has shown me many highly qualified techniques of harp tuning and string attachement that are invaluable for my work as a harpist. ..."
