5th Molyvos International Music Festival

DIA-LOGOS
8 - 19 August 2019

Ancient Greece was a society steeped in discourse, argument and debate. As the society that invented democracy, public and personal dialogue were its foundation. Nowadays, it has become more important than ever that we reexamine this fundamental concept. Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis are the pillars of any form of human interaction. Opposing ideas are unavoidable, but their synthesis is attainable. In our 5 concerts Thesis, Antithesis, Dialogue, Reconciliation and Synthesis we want to approach this subject from a musical perspective. Art has the ability to highlight the similarities of seemingly irreconcilable contrasts and especially chamber Music is the essence of musical dialogue in which that is possible.

Dialogues come in many shapes and forms, but they all address both intellect and emotion.

Thesis and Antithesis as counterpoint are the origins of Synthesis which is Harmony.

Apollon and Dionysus represent both logic and instinct, the two counterparts to creating a work of art, a musical composition - whether it is an ancient drama or a symphonic work.
