SOUNDS OF THE MUSES: Musical journeys through the material testimonies of the past”

The Heraklion Archaeological Museum presents a new cycle of musical performances in the exhibition rooms of the Museum, in order to highlight exhibits and displays to the accompaniment of music. The cycle, under the general title of “SOUNDS OF THE MUSES: Musical journeys through the material testimonies of the past – Summer 2016”, includes hour-long performances of works and improvisations, by solo instruments or small groups of musicians, in selected areas of the Museum rooms.

The musicians have the opportunity to “comment on” and converse with the material testimonies of the past, while their musical expression gives visitors the chance to experience something different during their tour of the Museum.
