Formed of Turkey and Europe’s well-known performers, the Istanbul-based Hezarfen Ensemble are committed to promoting contemporary music. They present inspiring programs by way of intercultural and interdisciplinary projects and musical collaborations. Why would their concert for West Side Story be any different? Titled “American Post-minimalists”, the concert will feature works of pioneers of new music and, certainly, is a not-to-miss for lovers of contemporary music who are curious about music-writing in the new century.
