Memorable Concerts in Istanbul Mark Year’s End

As 2011 came to an end, the last week of December offered concerts everywhere in Istanbul, and most programs were dedicated to the New Year just around the corner, while one offered premieres of pieces written long ago.

From Moscow, the eminent Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of its long-time leader Vladimir Fedoseyev, came to the Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall (CRRKS) on Dec. 28. Its completely sold-out New Year’s Concert featured Russian ballet music, including the seasonal favorite, “The Nutcracker Suite” by Tchaikovsky, as well as “Petrushka” by Igor Stravinsky.
