Info for Mneme

Late medieval and traditional music from the Mediterranean countries.

“Mneme” by the Greek early music ensemble “Ex Silentio” is an intriguing collection of musical remembrances from all around the mediterranean sea: dances, songs and instrumental pieces from medieval and early renaissance sources.

The musicians of Ex Silentio, being at home both in the traditional folk music and the “classical” early music world, create a colorful portrait of these ancient times, telling of mighty kings, noble knights and beautiful princesses that once populated those countries as well as people’s imaginations then as now.

“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.

Ex Silentio:
Theodora Baka, voice
Tobias Schlierf, voice, hurdy-gurdy, fiddle, organ portative
Dimitris Kountouras, recorder, musical direction
Thimios Atzakas, oud
Andreas Linos, fiddle & viola da gamba
Elektra Miliadou, fiddle & viola da gamba
Nikos Varelas, percussion


Ex Silentio
was founded in 2001 by Dimitris Kountouras and Markellos Chryssikopoulos. Varying from two up to seven musicians, the ensemble is equally at home with late medieval, renaissance as well as with baroque repertoire while is providing contemporary music projects as well, often connected with early music. Being one of the few greek ensembles specializing on early music and historical performance practice, Ex Silentio has given numerous concerts in several European countries like in Greece, Germany, Italy, Holland, Austria etc. The ensemble collaborates regularly with the mezzo soprano Theodora Baka and the counter tenor Nikos Spanos.
