Classical Music Breeze Blowing in Istanbul in Autumn

Classical music lovers in İstanbul will be in for a treat this autumn as the newest editions of classical concerts series from Boğaziçi University’s Albert Long Hall and Martı İstanbul Hotel are rolled out.

The Albert Long Hall classical concert series will kick off this season’s program on Wednesday when Israeli-American cellist Amit Peled will perform a concerto by Haydn. The opening concert will also see İstanbul Sinfonietta perform under the baton of the Turkish conductor Gürer Aykal.

The inaugural concert of the series will be followed by a performance by the Polish ensemble Apollon Musagete Quartett (AMQ) on Oct. 22. They will play pieces by Haydn, Szymanowski and Schubert.

The other performers of the series include young Polish pianist Mateusz Borowiak, Salzburg-based chamber orchestra Camerata Salzburg, the 11-member St. Lawrence Church Choir from England and French flute player Julien Beaudiment.
