In the first part of the concert, İstanbul State Symphony Orchestra accompanies oboe group member Damla Tuncer for Alessandro Marcello’s Oboe Concerto, and trumpet group member Timuçin Abacı for Johann Baptist Georg Neruda’s Trumpet Concerto. While two soloist play together Vivaldi's Concerto for Two Oboes for the encore, maestro Can Okan accompanies them with the harpsichord. The audience gives big hand to these three works of the most renowned representatives of the Late Baroque epoque.
In the second part, the orchestra gracefully plays Ludwing van Beethoven's rarely played, bare, chamber music-like first symphony.
