GENESIS | 8-19 August 2018
"What comes of a Catharsis? A Genesis of a new identity, of a new self with renewed hope and a new direction in life. With that comes a whole new set of challenges but also opportunities that need to be explored. That is the path we would like to embark on musically during the 4rth Molyvos International Music Festival. We are looking forward to it!"
Danae & Kiveli Doerken, MIMF artistic director
The Molyvos International Music Festival (MIMF) is a unique project in the North Aegean region that brings together the greatest international young talents for a celebration of world-class classical music. Merging exciting rising-stars alongside the biggest names in classical music, MIMF aims to be Greece's most prestigious classical music event and one of Europe's idyllic chamber music festivals.
