Aleksandar Simić - February 2014

Aleksandar Simić"Istinski se radujem predstojećem aprilskom susretu sa grčkom publikom. To što Fondacija Porfirogenis i Dino Mastrojanis rade već treću godinu za redom, predstavlja najbolji primer dovođenja sjajnih kulturnih sadržaja u srce grčke provincije. Ovo nije samo odlična prilika  za građane Volosa da se upoznaju sa aktuelnim muzičkim stvaralaštvom - ovo je i savršena prilika za sve nas koji učestvujemo na festivalu da sa sobom ponesemo deo tesalijske kulture koji će se u jednom trenutku sigurno pojaviti i u našim delima, a možda posle nekih 20 godina i vratiti na scenu nekog od budućih izdanja Evmelia Festivala. Neka nam dugo poživi ovo malo umetničko utočište i mesto susreta!"

Aleksandar Simić (Serbia)

Composer-in-residence of Evmelia III (2014)


«I'm genuinely looking forward to the coming April and the meeting with the Greek audience. What the Porphyrogenis Foundation and Dino Mastroyiannis have been doing for a third year in a row, represents a best example of bringing quality cultural contents to the very heart of the provincial Greece. This is not only a great opportunity for the citizens of Volos to see and experience the new trends in classical music, it is also a perfect opportunity for all of us involved with the Festival, to bring home a part of the Thessalian  culture, which is bound to resurface at some point in some of our future works, and perhaps, 20 years from now, even return to the stage of some of the coming  Evmelia Festivals. May this little sanctuary and a place of artistic encounters live for many years to come!”

Mikis Theodorakis - April 2013

Mikis TheodorakisΣήμερα η ανθρωπότητα και ειδικά η νότια Ευρώπη βιώνει μια από τις πιο δύσκολες περιόδους της ιστορίας της. Κι αυτό γιατί ο σημερινός εχθρός με τις παγκοσμιοποιημένες του διαστάσεις στοχεύει στον ολοκληρωμένο υποβιβασμό του ανθρώπου: βιολογικό, ηθικό, πνευματικό και ψυχικό.

Θα έλεγα ότι ο βασικός του στόχος είναι να μας μεταμορφώσουν σε στρατιές μυρμηγκιών με ανθρώπινες διαστάσεις, που να βαδίζουν άβουλοι και σιωπηλοί ο ένας πίσω από τον άλλο εκτελώντας πειθαρχικά τις εντολές του Μεγάλου Αδελφού.

Εμείς στην Ελλάδα ζούμε την περίοδο της γενικευμένης εξαθλίωσης στα πλαίσια της πολιτικής του «Σοκ και Δέος» παράλληλα με την υποβάθμιση της πολιτιστικής μας παράδοσης με στόχο την εξάλειψη της ιστορικής μας ταυτότητας.

Robert Sélitrenny - March 2013

Robert SélitrennyC’est avec une très grande joie, mais surtout avec une immense satisfaction que j’apprends la décision définitive du déroulement du Festival EVMELIA bel et bien en cette année 2013 également. Il est, en effet pour moi, si important de rappeler le rôle inaliénable et primordial de la musique tel qu’il fut jadis défini par nos ancêtres grecs. Le rappeler ici et maintenant à ce monde actuellement en proie à un matérialisme éhonté et qui, avec une arrogance extrême, tente d’exclure les lieux où se trouvent les berceaux de notre culture commune à la place de les honorer dignement. C’est à mes yeux précisément cette fatale erreur que le Festival EVMELIA corrige avec sa simple et courageuse existence. Je l’en félicite très sincèrement et lui souhaite une longue vie.

John Psathas - March 2012

John PsathasIt is a wonderful honour to be the Composer in Residence at the Evmelia International Music Festival. The screening of the film View From Olympus (telling the story of my family’s journey to New Zealand in the 1960s and their return to Greece in the 1980s) will be a very special occasion for us, as my family and I will be reuniting in Volos just before the screening.

And the performances later that evening of my works by such wonderful musicians, in such a beautiful location, will be a memory I will treasure. It is with my deepest and heartfelt thanks to my dear friend, Artistic Director, Dino Mastroyiannis, that I look forward to arriving in Volos and enjoying this wonderful festival.
