6TH INTERNATIONAL PHAROS CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FESTIVAL
4 - 8 OCTOBER 2014


Organised between 4 and 8 October 2014 at The Shoe Factory in Nicosia, the 6th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival focuses on the connection of new music and other forms of art, as well as alternative forms of contemporary music such as “free jazz” and electronics. The Festival will open on 4 October with an innovative concert-concept by the Ergon Ensemble during which films of the ‘silent era’ will be screened simultaneously with the live performance of new works, attaining therefore a new dimension, character and denotation. Over the span of five days, the Festival will feature a number of exciting events such as lectures, documentary screenings, educational activities, a recital with pianist Hayk Melikyan who returns to Cyprus to join forces with the fascinating violinist Hugo Ticciati, and it will conclude on 8 October with Soundspaces – “A concert of live electronics, improvisation and free jazz” by Johannes Schwarz (bassoon) and Sascha Armbruster (saxophone). read more...
