Cotsiolis has appeared as a soloist with numerous renowned orchestras including the Belgian Radio Symphony Orchestra (RTBF), BBC Concert Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra i Pomeriggi Musicali, and he collaborated with legendary artists like Astor Piazzolla, John Williams, Jean-Jaques Kantorow, Stanley Jordan and Mikis Theodorakis. He has appeared in the majority of the guitar festivals around the world, including Esztergom, Liege, Havana, Cordoba, Koblenz, Iserlohn, Guitar Foundation of America, to name but a few.
