Samos Young Artists Fest Brings Cultures Closer


In its sixth year, the Samos Young Artists Festival brings international performers to the Eastern Aegean, with concerts and events kicking off on Friday, at the island’s Ancient Pythagorion Theater.

Aptly titled “Around the World in 7 Days”, the series of concerts features everything from fusion and world music to opera and jazz, and will run through to August 13, bringing together young artists from across the globe.

Up-and-coming instrumentalists, musicians, singers and bands from Russia, Romania, Turkey, Germany, Greece, Austria and South Korea, will join forces to transport visitors and locals of Samos, via their music.

This year’s creative director is lead violinist of Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, soloist and chamber musician Daniel Nodel.

Among the acts taking the stage are Russians Terem Quartet playing a melange of traditional Russian music with a touch of world song, South Korean violinist Ye-Eun Choi, who joins Germany’s Silke Avenhaus in classic works by  Isang Yun, Brahms, Schnittke και Wieniawsky, Azerbaijani jazzman David Gazarov, Austrian baritone Mathias Hausmann and Greek mezzo-soprano Stella Doufexis in operatic works. Concerts start after 8pm.
