16-19 August 2016

In many places around the world walls are being built, however in the traditional village of Molyvos, in the island of Lesbos that faced many difficulties in 2016 bridges were indeed created. Between the 16th-19th of August 2016 the 2nd Molyvos International Music Festival took place under the title “Crossroads”. Highly acclaimed artists from all around the world took part, thrilling the audience and sending through their musical partnership a symbolic message of peaceful collaboration and harmonious coexistence of humans.

The audience that filled the castle and visitors of Molyvos in different spots of the village had the opportunity to hear live famous performers of the world classical scene, including pianist Lars Fogt, and become part of a unique experience.

The german newspaper Tagesspiegel in its sunday edition, 21.8.16, wrote about the festival:

The Magic of Molyvos. A vision for Europe: … The full of music days at Molyvos allow a vision for Europe to be revealed: young, dynamic, playful but at the same time serious, aware of tradition.”
