As in the last 14 years, the 46th Istanbul Music Festival kicks off with the opening concert of Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Sascha Goetzel.
1812 Overture, Op. 49
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
This short music piece composed in 1880 has been elaborately worked on and orchestrated with great artistry. Even though the 1812 Overture has been regarded as a patchwork of clichés making extravagant use of Russian and French anthems and a folk hymn, it is an immensely exciting piece for large orchestra.
Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minör, op. 30
