Since its inception 17 years ago the International Pharos Chamber Music Festival has established itself as the most important annual classical music event in Cyprus, and has gained an international reputation for its quality concerts and magnificent settings. Guided by a visionary spirit and dedicated to artistic excellence, the Festival is now recognised as one of Europe's preeminent music festivals, having placed Cyprus on the international cultural map and garnering enthusiastic acclaim from music lovers all over the world, while it has made chamber music more accessible to the general public by presenting exciting programmes and performances of the highest level by some of the world’s most renowned soloists. The Festival also maintains a strong tradition of community service, with educational concerts organized for students of public schools and a number of master-classes for young instrumentalists.

Organized between 2 and 20 June 2017, the 17th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival welcomes to Cyprus some of the most remarkable artists on the international music scene, for an extensive week of music-making in two unique venues in Cyprus: the Royal Manor House in Kouklia – one of the finest surviving monuments of Frankish architecture in Cyprus and a UNESCO World Heritage site, and The Shoe Factory, a contemporary recital venue situated in Ermou Street near the buffer zone in Nicosia. Exploring the many forms of the chamber music genre, the Festival will encompass an impressive array of instrumental combinations and repertoire, ranging from the Baroque to the 20th century, as well as a number of rarely performed masterpieces.

THE 2017 EDITION:

The 17th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival will open on Friday 2 June 2017, at The Shoe Factory in Nicosia, with a voice and piano recital by the renowned Danish coloratura soprano Susanne Elmark. In great demand around the world for the last twenty years, Elmark has been engaged in houses like Deutsche Oper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Gran Teatre del Liceu Barcelona, Teatro Real Madrid, Opera Oslo, Oper Frankfurt, Oper Cologne, Opernhaus Zürich, and Royal Opera Copenhagen. For her recital in Cyprus, Susanne Elmark will join forces with the international repetiteur Christian Westergaard, winner of the 2015 International Lied Duo Competition, in a programme of songs by Debussy, Berg, R. Strauss, Prokofiev and Grieg.

A week later, on Friday 9 June 2017, The Shoe Factory will welcome the return visit of the sensational young pianist Vitaly Pisarenko, winner of the First Prize in the 8th International Franz Liszt Piano Competition and Third Prize winner at the 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition. His recital, which is organised in collaboration with the Keyboard Charitable Trust in London, will include works by Schubert, Schumann and Liszt.

After an intensive week of educational activities and master-classes for students from all over the world, the 17th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival will move to the Royal Manor House of the ancient village of Kouklia near Paphos, which is specifically transformed by the Festival to a first class recital hall. Some of the world’s greatest musicians will join forces for six concerts, between 15 and 20 June 2017, in an impressive array of works.

The Festival will host one of the most renowned names of the great Russian piano school, Sergei Babayan, claimed for the immediacy, sensitivity and depth of his interpretations, the rare emotional intensity and bold energy of his performances and his extraordinary mastery in exploring stylistically diverse repertoire. Babayan was the first pianist from the former USSR who was able to compete without government sponsorship after the collapse of the system, and immediately after his first trip outside of the USSR, he won consecutive first prizes in several major international competitions including the Cleveland International Piano Competition, the Hamamatsu Piano Competition and the Busoni International Piano Competition. The Festival will also feature one of the most musically dynamic and technically gifted performers of the new generation of pianists, the Gold Medallist of the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Vadym Kholodenko, who is internationally recognised for his powerful and exhilarating performances that “show the guts of a true super-artist”. Alongside them, the Festival is thrilled to present the return visit of the amazing Yevgeny Sudbin, hailed by The Telegraph as ‘potentially one of the greatest pianists of the 21st century’ and by the International Record Review as ‘one of the most important pianistic talents of our time’.

Besides the Festival’s regular guests – distinguished cellist and artistic director of the Festival Alexander Chaushian, the impressive Russian violinist Boris Brovtsyn, violinists Levon Chilingirian and Monika Urbonaite, violists Diemut Poppen and David Abrahamyan, and cellist Tim Park, this year’s Festival will also host for the first time the exceptional violinist Alena Baeva, who is fast emerging as one of the finest violinists of her generation, having already carved out an impressive career to date working regularly as a soloist with some of the world’s most important orchestras, one of the most brilliant and engaging French violinists of our times – Nicolas Dautricourt, who has been voted "Classical Discovery of the Year" at the Midem in Cannes and awarded the Sacem Georges Enesco Prize, the prodigious violinist Clara-Jumi Kang, prize winner in several major competitions, including, Tibor Varga, Seoul, Hannover and Indianapolis violin competitions, and the fascinating violist Jennifer Stumm, recognised as one of the world’s dynamic and creative advocates for her instrument, whose TED talk “The Imperfect Instrument” was named editor’s pick of all talks on ted.com.

The 17th International Pharos Chamber Music Festival will also welcome the return visits of French cellist Marc Coppey, who was discovered by Lord Yehudi Menuhin at a very early age and who is nowadays considered one of the leading cellists in the world, the renowned Italian flutist Massimo Mercelli, who is the dedicatee of numerous works by some of the most important contemporary composers including Philip Glass, Giovanni Sollima, Sofia Gubaidulina and Krzysztof Penderecki, and the newly founded Cyprus Guitar Trio, which comprises three renowned classical guitarists from Cyprus – Vasilios Avraam, George Christofi and Socrates Leptos.

2 & 9 ΙΟΥΝΙΟΥ / THE SHOE FACTORY, ΛΕΥΚΩΣΙΑ
15 – 20 ΙΟΥΝΙΟΥ / ΜΕΣΑΙΩΝΙΚΗ ΕΠΑΥΛΗ, ΚΟΥΚΛΙΑ


Από την ίδρυσή του, 17 χρόνια πριν, το Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Μουσικής Δωματίου Φάρος έχει καθιερωθεί ως ο σημαντικότερος ετήσιος μουσικός θεσμός στην Κύπρο και έχει αναγνωρισθεί παγκοσμίως τόσο για την ποιότητα των συναυλιών του όσο και για τους εξαίσιους χώρους στους οποίους πραγματοποιείται, χαρίζοντας στη Κύπρο μια σημαντική θέση στον διεθνή πολιτιστικό χάρτη. Με όραμα και αφοσίωση στην καλλιτεχνική ποιότητα, το Φεστιβάλ συγκαταλέγεται στα σπουδαιότερα φεστιβάλ μουσικής στην Ευρώπη, ενώ παράλληλα, προωθεί τη μουσική δωματίου στο ευρύ κοινό, προσφέροντας συναυλίες εξαιρετικού επιπέδου με ορισμένους από τους σημαντικότερους καλλιτέχνες του διεθνούς μουσικού στερεώματος. Το Φεστιβάλ διατηρεί επίσης δυνατούς κοινωνικούς δεσμούς, προσφέροντας εκπαιδευτικές συναυλίες σε μαθητές της δημοτικής και μέσης εκπαίδευσης, και διοργανώνοντας εργαστήρια μουσικής για νεαρούς οργανοπαίχτες.

Το 17ο Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Μουσικής Δωματίου Φάρος διοργανώνεται μεταξύ 2 και 20 Ιουνίου 2017, και καλωσορίζει στην Κύπρο ορισμένους από τους σημαντικότερους μουσικούς ανά το παγκόσμιο για μια εντατική εβδομάδα μουσικής πανδαισίας, με συναυλίες σε δύο ξεχωριστές αίθουσες σε Λευκωσία και Πάφο: Τη Μεσαιωνική Έπαυλη στο αρχαίο χωριό των Κουκλιών – η οποία είναι ένα από τα πιο εντυπωσιακά διασωθέντα μνημεία Φράγκικης αρχιτεκτονικής στην Κύπρο και αποτελεί Μνημείο Παγκόσμιας Πολιτιστικής Κληρονομιάς της ΟΥΝΕΣΚΟ, και τον σύγχρονο συναυλιακό χώρο του Ιδρύματος Τεχνών Φάρος, The Shoe Factory, ο οποίος βρίσκεται στην οδό Ερμού στην παλιά Λευκωσία. Αναδιφώντας στο ποικίλο και ενδιαφέρον παρελθόν της μουσικής δωματίου, το πρόγραμμα του Φεστιβάλ είναι άκρως δελεαστικό, για ποικίλους συνδυασμούς οργάνων, σε γνωστά αλλά και πιο σπάνια αριστουργήματα από την εποχή Μπαρόκ μέχρι και τον 20ο αιώνα.

ΤΟ ΦΕΤΙΝΟ ΦΕΣΤΙΒΑΛ:

Όπως κάθε χρόνο, έτσι και φέτος το Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Μουσικής Δωματίου Φάρος θα σηκώσει αυλαία στο The Shoe Factory, Λευκωσία. Η πρώτη συναυλία, την Παρασκευή 2 Ιουνίου 2017, θα φιλοξενήσει τη διάσημη Δανή κολορατούρα σοπράνο Susanne Elmark σε ένα ρεσιτάλ με τραγούδια των Ντεμπισί, Μπεργκ, Ρ. Στράους, Προκόφιεφ και Γκριγκ. Περιζήτητη ανά το παγκόσμιο, η Elmark έχει εμφανισθεί στην Όπερα του Βερολίνου, στη Βαυαρική Κρατική Όπερα του Μονάχου, στο Liceu της Βαρκελώνης και Teatro Real της Μαδρίτης, στην Όπερα του Όσλο, την Όπερα της Φρανκφούρτης και της Κολωνίας, την Όπερα της Ζυρίχης και τη Βασιλική Όπερα της Κοπεγχάγης. Για το ρεσιτάλ της στην Κύπρο, η Susanne Elmark θα ενώσει τις δυνάμεις της με τον πιανίστα Christian Westergaard, νικητή του πρώτου βραβείου στον Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Ντούο Λιντ το 2015.

Μια εβδομάδα αργότερα, την Παρασκευή 9 Ιουνίου 2017, το The Shoe Factory θα φιλοξενήσει τον συγκλονιστικό νεαρό πιανίστα Vitaly Pisarenko, νικητή του Πρώτου Βραβείου στον 8ο Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου Φρανς Λιστ και του Τρίτου Βραβείου στον Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου του Λιντς, το 2015. Το ρεσιτάλ, το οποίο πραγματοποιείται σε συνεργασία με το Keyboard Charitable Trust Λονδίνου, θα περιλαμβάνει έργα των Σούμπερτ, Σούμαν και Λιστ.

Έπειτα από μια εντατική εβδομάδα εκπαιδευτικών δραστηριοτήτων και εργαστηρίων μουσικής για μαθητές από την Κύπρο και το εξωτερικό, το 17ο Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Μουσικής Δωματίου Φάρος θα μεταφερθεί στη Μεσαιωνική Έπαυλη στα Κούκλια της Παλαίπαφου, η οποία μεταμορφώνεται ειδικά για τους σκοπούς του φεστιβάλ σε μια άριστης ποιότητας αίθουσα μουσικής. Ορισμένοι από τους σημαντικότερους μουσικούς του διεθνούς μουσικού στερεώματος θα ενώσουν τις δυνάμεις τους για έξι συναυλίες, μεταξύ 15 και 20 Ιουνίου 2017, σε ένα εντυπωσιακό φάσμα ρεπερτορίου.

Το Φεστιβάλ θα φιλοξενήσει ένα από τα πιο καταξιωμένα ονόματα της μεγάλης ρωσικής σχολής του πιάνου, τον Sergei Babayan, ο οποίος είναι φημισμένος για την αμεσότητα, την ευαισθησία και το βάθος των ερμηνειών του, τη σπάνια συναισθηματική του ένταση και την τολμηρή ενέργεια των εκτελέσεων του, καθώς και την εξαιρετική μαεστρία του στην εξερεύνηση ενός στιλιστικά ποικίλου ρεπερτορίου. Ο Babayan είναι ο πρώτος πιανίστας που συμμετείχε σε διαγωνισμούς του εξωτερικού, χωρίς τη βοήθεια κρατικής χορηγίας, μετά την κατάρρευση της πρώην ΕΣΣΔ. Το πρώτο του κιόλας ταξίδι στη Δύση, του επέφερε συνεχόμενα πρώτα βραβεία σε πολλούς μεγάλους διεθνείς διαγωνισμούς, μεταξύ άλλων, Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου του Κλήβελαντ, Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου Χαμαμάτσου και Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου Μπουσόνι. Το Φεστιβάλ θα παρουσιάσει επίσης έναν από τους πιο δυναμικούς μουσικά και χαρισματικούς τεχνικά πιανίστες της νέα γενιάς, τον Χρυσό Νικητή του Διεθνούς Διαγωνισμού Πιάνου Van Cliburn το 2013, Vadym Kholodenko, ο οποίος έχει αναγνωρισθεί διεθνώς για τις επιβλητικές και συναρπαστικές του ερμηνείες που «φανερώνουν το θάρρος ενός αληθινού υπέρ-καλλιτέχνη». Παράλληλα, το Φεστιβάλ θα φιλοξενήσει την επιστροφή του εκπληκτικού Yevgeny Sudbin, ο οποίος χαρακτηρίστηκε από την εφημερίδα Telegraph ως «πιθανότατα ένας από τους σπουδαιότερους πιανίστες του 21ου αιώνα» και από το International Record Review ως «ένα από τα σημαντικότερα πιανιστικά ταλέντα της εποχής μας».

Εκτός από τους τακτικούς συμμετέχοντες του Φεστιβάλ – τον διακεκριμένο τσελίστα και καλλιτεχνικό διευθυντή του Φεστιβάλ Alexander Chaushian, τον εντυπωσιακό Ρώσο βιολονίστα Boris Brovtsyn, τους βιολονίστες Levon Chilingirian και Monika Urbonaite, τους βιολίστες Diemut Poppen και David Abrahamyan, και τον τσελίστα Tim Park, το Φετινό Φεστιβάλ θα φιλοξενήσει για πρώτη φορά την εξαιρετική βιολονίστα Alena Baeva, η οποία έχει γρήγορα αναδειχθεί ως μια από τις πιο εξαίσιες βιολονίστες της γενιάς της, διαγράφοντας ήδη μια εντυπωσιακή καριέρα ως σολίστ με ορισμένες από τις σημαντικότερες ορχήστρες στον κόσμο. Μαζί της, θα εμφανισθούν ένας από τους πιο λαμπρούς και εντυπωσιακούς Γάλλους βιολονίστες της εποχής μας, ο Nicolas Dautricourt, ο οποίος έχει ψηφιστεί ως «Κλασική Ανακάλυψη της Χρονιάς» στο Midem στις Κάννες και έχει τιμηθεί με το Βραβείο Georges Enesco από τη SACEM, και η εκπληκτική βιολονίστα Clara-Jumi Kang, νικήτρια σε πολλούς σημαντικούς διαγωνισμούς βιολιού, συμπεριλαμβανομένων, Tibor Varga, Σεούλ, Ανόβερου, και Ινδιανάπολης. Την πρώτη της εμφάνιση στην Κύπρο θα κάνει και η συναρπαστική βιολίστρια Jennifer Stumm, η οποία έχει αναγνωρισθεί ανά το παγκόσμιο ως μία από τις πιο δυναμικές και δημιουργικές υπερμάχους της βιόλας, της οποίας η ομιλία «Το Ατελές Όργανο», που έδωσε μέσα στο πλαίσιο της σειράς του TED αναδείχθηκε «επιλογή του συντάκτη» από όλες τις ομιλίες που έγιναν ποτέ για το ted.com.

Το 17ο Διεθνές Φεστιβάλ Μουσικής Δωματίου Φάρος θα φιλοξενήσει επίσης την επιστροφή του Γάλλου Marc Coppey, του οποίου το ταλέντο ανακάλυψε σε μικρή ηλικία ο Λόρδος Γεχούντι Μενουχίν και ο οποίος τώρα συγκαταλέγεται ανάμεσα στους πιο επιφανείς τσελίστες της εποχής μας, του Ιταλού φλαουτίστα Massimo Mercelli, ο οποίος έχει ερμηνεύσει πρώτες εκτελέσεις αναρίθμητων έργων από ορισμένους από τους σημαντικότερους σύγχρονους συνθέτες όπως Φίλιπ Γκλας, Σοφία Γκουμπαϊντουλινα, Κριστόφ Πεντερέτσκι και Giovanni Sollima, και το νεοσύστατο Cyprus Guitar Trio, το οποίο αποτελείται από τρεις διακεκριμένους κλασικούς κιθαρίστες από την Κύπρο – τους Βασίλειο Αβραάμ, Γιώργο Χριστοφή και Σωκράτη Λεπτό.
