The Early Music Ensemble Ex Silentio presents a wide range of repertoire from medieval up to baroque. Founded in Greece, Ex Silentio appears regularly in festivals and venues in many European countries and focuses especially on music from Southern Europe and the Mediterranean as well as on Orient - Occident music relations. Ex Silentio's CD "Mneme" received the Pizzicato Price and was short listed for the International Classical Music Awards.

Millennium of Music, September 2015

“Mneme” is as much a historically well-informed performance of this ancient music as it is a visionary and highly creative fairytale derived from Greek mythology and mediterranean psyche. © 2015 Millennium of Music
