London Philharmonic Orchestra give acclaimed performance in Istanbul with Hüseyin Sermet
Bringing to a close Istanbul’s celebrations as European Capital of Culture in 2010, the London Philharmonic Orchestra gave a highly-acclaimed concert with their Principal Conductor, Vladimir Jurowski, at the Is Sanat concert hall last month. In this sold-out performance, they were joined by pianist Hüseyin Sermet in a programme featuring Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 and Brahms’s Symphony No. 4. This was the first visit by the orchestra to this ancient city in ten years.
