Music on Samos

2013

A journey through Europe

The cultural history of Europe begins in Greece. Can there be a better place to begin an adventure through the music of this continent than here, where everything began? The Samos Festival invites you to take a musical tour of the world. You can look forward to folk music from many different countries – from Belarus to Turkey to France, for example, and hear different interpretations of international composers like Bach, Janacek or Say.
