10th International Classical Music Festival of Cyclades

The International Classical Music Festival of Cyclades is back this year from August 9, 2014 to August 17, 2014 in order to celebrate its 10th anniversary and the 150 years from the inauguration of the Apollo Theatre at Ermoupoli.

With the motto “Ars longa, vita brevis”, a phrase by Hippocrates, the internationally acclaimed festival, pays a tribute to classical music and remembers all the famous artists who have honored it with their participation, such as Leonidas Kavakos, Nobuko Imai, Michaela Martin, Frans Helmerson, Radovan Vlatkovic, Janis Vakarelis, Costas Cotsiolis and Michel Lethiec among others.

The 2014 edition of the festival offers a diverse and rich programme, with an ensemble of the world’s oldest orchestra, the Royal Danish Orchestra (Det Kongelige Kapel, est. 1448) as guest of honour.

As every year, this year's festival features distinguished artists such as the Athens Mandolinata quintet, the soloists of the Greek National Opera Vassiliki Karayanni, Irene Karayanni and Ioanna Forti, the counter tenor Nikos Spanatis, the pianists Alexandra Nomidou and Karolos Zouganelis, the Greek actress Magda Mavroyanni, the concertmaster of the Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra, Korean violinist Paul Kim, the artistic director and conductor of the Athens State Orchestra, Stefanos Tsialis, the artistic director of the “Simfonia” Piraeus and the Saronic islands Festival, violinist of the Athens State Orchestra and conductor Nikos Haliassas, and the violinist Yiannos Margaziotis, concertmaster of the National Greek Opera Orchestra and artistic director of the International Classical Music Festival of Cyclades.
