Pianist Gülsin Onay performs Mozart K466 with the Grammy winner conductor Jose Serebrier at the Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra.

In midstream of a concert season running from Latin America to the Fareast, Gülsin Onay stopped at her native city to play with the Istanbul State Symphony under the baton of Jose Serebrier.

Playing 11 different concertos this season out of her 40+ concerto repertoire, Gülsin Onay will perform Mozart K466 in D minor in Istanbul. She has been internationally praised for her “wonderfully well characterised, heavenly Mozart” and is said to “let the music blossom with her flexible, wonderfully light touch.” In this work, Gülsin Onay plays the much praised cadenza written by her husband Cambridge Mathematics Professor Tony Scholl.

Under the baton of Jose Serebrier, Istanbul State Symphony will also perform Stokowski-Bach C minor Passacaglia and Fugue at the concert as well as Serebrier’s arrangement of Bizet’s Carmen. Hailed as “the greatest master of orchestral balance” by Leopold Stokowski, Serebrier is also a celebrated composer. The Grammy-winner maestro is one of the most recorded classical artists in history.

The single night event is on 29 January Friday at 19:30 at Cemal Reşit Rey Hall in Istanbul.
