Date & Place

09 March, 2020 Monday, 20:30 h. Istanbul Cemal Resit Rey


Istanbul is a city buzzing with cultural activity and with a prestigious agenda that draws renowned orchestras from around the world. On 9 March the Basque National Orchestra will play on the stage of the CRR to perform what is considered Anton Bruckner’s masterpiece, his Symphony No. 9, and Violin Concerto No. 1 by Max Bruch during the first part with Alena Baeva as the guest soloist. It will be Hans Graf who will hold the baton. The Austrian was the permanent director of the Basque National Orchestra in the late 90s and has returned on several occasions as guest conductor. 

The Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall is one of the country’s main concert halls and the first to be designed for classical music. It owes its name to Turk composer Cemal Reşit Rey, also an orchestra director and founder of the Istanbul State Symphony Orchestra. It was inaugurated in March 1989. During these 30 years it has hosted companies from around the world, and hosts the city’s classical, jazz and dance programme which includes performances by the CRR Symphony Orchestra, the CRR Turkish Music Ensemble and the CRR Jazz Orchestra.
