In this concert, which will be directed by the founder and honorary conductor of BIPO Gürer Aykal, we will also listen to Concerto da Camera by Ahmed Adnan Saygun, one of the first-generation composers of our republic, and parts from Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s unique gifts to the ballet stages and concert repertoires The Sleeping Beauty, The Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
