DİSKANT celebrates the 99th birthday of İlhan Usmanbaş with this concert at Borusan Music House. DİSKANT, aspiring to include prominent works of the contemporary world music in its repertoire, organises concerts, workshops and seminars to familiarise the audience, performers and composers with new techniques and aesthetical trends in music, and also conducts research and education in this field. The piece titled Sekizil composed in 1960 by Usmanbaş, one of the greatest composers Turkey has raised will be performed at the concert as well as the premieres of works commissioned for this concert to younger generation composers. DİSKANT consists of expert musicians who specialise in the performance of new music. The ensemble is also at the centre of attention of composers who pursue “fine craftsmanship” for its impetus achieved through the level it has attained.
