A message from the festival organiser

Gunnar Strømsholm, Festival organiser

Gunnar Strømsholm

2013 marked the tenth year of The Casa dei Mezzo Music Festival - described by The Sunday Times Online as 'the most unique and intimate classical music Summer festival in Europe' - and the only exciting classical music festival on Crete offering a dynamic programme to complement the fascinating cultural heritage of this magnificent island.

Our 10th anniversary festival lasted for seven days and featured 12 concerts. Apart from the free opening concert next to Makrigialos Harbour, all of the other festival events took place at the Villa Casa dei Mezzo in Makrigialos.

Over the years our festival has been very proud to welcome many really outstanding artists, and these are often artists with significant international careers. Our artists stay in Makrigialos throughout the festival and this helps to create that very special and unique atmosphere so much enjoyed by artists and audiences alike.

Please follow us on our facebook page. This has all the latest news for the forthcoming festival as well as lots of great photographs and comments from last year.

I look forward to welcoming you to our 2014 festival.
