BIPO’s 20th-year concert in honour of its Honorary Conductor Gürer Aykal will be a passage of masterpieces. On the night where Dreams of a River by contemporary Turkish composer Mahir Cetiz, who is closely followed and performed by both BIPO and the Borusan Quartet, and The Planets by Gustav Holst will be performed soloist Denis Kozhukhin will appear on stage performing one of the golden pieces of the piano repertoire the Piano Concerto by Edvard Grieg. Described by music critics as “having a special place among the crowded world of piano virtuosos”, Kozhukhin performed last season in Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, Stockholm, Vienna and many other important centres of music, with prominent conductors including Barenboim, Weilerstein, Petrenko, Krivine and Orozco-Estrada.

MAGMA Philharmonic Choir, a part of ‘World Champion’ Boğaziçi Jazz Choir, under the direction of Masis Aram Gözbek will bring pleasant moments to the audience.
