Manos Hatzidakis (1925 –1979) was a Greek composer and theorist of Greek music. Gifted, melancholic, sensitive, wonderful… He was one of the most important Greek composers, the most romantic and soul – touching according to many people who still fall in love and daydream with his music. In 1960 he received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for his song Never on Sunday from the film of the same name.
