Born in Cyprus, Eleni began piano lessons aged five and later trained at the Royal College of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. She was generously supported by the Leventis Foundation. Her mentors have included Yonty Solomon, Fali Pavri and Martino Tirimo. Eleni's successes include prizes at the Maria Callas Grand Prix in Athens, Mozart International Competition Salzburg, the EU Piano Competition in Prague, and the Royal Overseas League Competition. Eleni has performed concerti with orchestras including the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra, the Patras Chamber Orchestra, the state orchestra of Thessaloniki, and collaborations with the Scottish Ensemble and the Hyperion Ensemble. Performances have taken her to Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Iceland, South Korea, the UK and USA, appearing in venues such as the Megaron in Athens and Thessaloniki, The Rialto Cyprus, St Martin-in-the-Fields, The Queens Hall Edinburgh and The Seoul Concert Hall. She has also recorded for CYBC radio and television on several occasions.

"Mavromoustaki's playing is storytelling from start to finish with an unforced style that lets the tale unfold..."

"her gentle touch served to make the folk-inspired passages sound poignantly nostalgic..."

"she took us on a journey where the mischievous theme seemed to gain wisdom through several transformations. Brilliant interpretative playing" Three Weeks Review - the Edinburgh Festival
