«A wonderful blend!»

(✮✮✮✮✮«It all starts with a place a little hidden from the throngs… and when you find it, the exhibition is simply a hidden gem. It was a very interesting experience about the research and developments towards bringing the Ancient Greek music back to life. A wonderful blend of history, culture and music goes into the personal presentation. Well worth fitting into your schedule!»
