For the third consecutive year, the Musical Village international artistic community will be taking up residence at the OCC to present three days of music covering the whole range from Early Music to the European avant-garde.

This year, small instrumental ensembles and solo praxis will be in the spotlight. There will also be a screening of a documentary about Music Village 2014 on Pelion.

On the first day, the programme features Switzerland’s  UMS ’n  JIP, the award-winning cellist, Demos Goudaroulis, who has carved out a singular international career for himself, and a solo performance by the nomadic New Zealand saxophonist, composer and producer, Hayden Chisholm, whose music expresses a different aspect of the European avant-garde. The final set features two singular soloists who have paired up into a somewhat unorthodox duo: the international jazz pianist Giorgos Kontrafouris gets together with Kostas Anastasiadis on drums.

On day two, the Uruguayan man of the theatre Camilo Betancor will present a contemporary Commedia dell’arte performance, while the singer-songwriter Maria Thoidou joins forces with Kostas Raptis on the bayan, promising a host of musical surprises. Right after that, the guitarist Kostas Makrygiannakis and the saxophonist Theofilos Sotiriadis will perform On Lacrimae, a musical performance with the actor/narrator Achilleas Anastasiadis. Once again this evening, two soloists have paired up into an unorthodox duo: the violinist Michalis Kouloumis flies in from London to make music with Spain’s Efrén López. For the final set the Kiwi saxophonist James Wylie joins forces with Thymios Atzakas on oud and guitar to premiere a musical narrative for two.
