About Ex Silentio
Ex Silentio was founded in 2001 by Dimitris Kountouras and Markellos Chryssikopoulos. Varying from two up to seven musicians, the ensemble is equally at home with late medieval, renaissance as well as with baroque repertoire while is providing contemporary music projects as well, often connected with early music. Being one of the few greek ensembles specializing on early music and historical performance practice, Ex Silentio has given numerous concerts in several European countries like in Greece, Germany, Italy, Holland, Austria etc.
The ensemble collaborates regularly with the mezzo soprano Theodora Baka and the counter tenor Nikos Spanos.

From August 7th until August 13th, internationally renowned artists and young rising stars from Germany, Greece, Georgia, France, Turkey, the U.S., Russia, and China meet on the Aegean island to perform eight open-air concerts in the Ancient Theatre of Pythagorion.
Alongside the artists, the audience is invited to be inspired by the lightness of the Greek summer, the historical significance of the location, and the beauty of the music.
The Festival’s artistic directors, the pianist Masha Ilyashov and the cellist Alexis Karaiskakis-Nastos created this year’s programme as a musical journey bridging cultural and national divides. The repertoire ranges from 18th- and 19th-century European classics through to Italian Baroque music, contemporary-music creations to traditional sounds of the Mediterranean.
