Itzhak Perlman, one of the world's best known violin virtuosos, is headed to İstanbul for a concert appearance later this month at the İstanbul Congress Center.
Billed as one of the finest classical musicians of the 20th and early 21st centuries, the Israeli-American Perlman will be playing in İstanbul on May 28 in a sold-out appearance, whose tickets ranged in price from TL 84 to TL 550.
Perlman plays the historic Soil Stradivarius, made in 1714, during the golden period of Antonio Stradivari, which was previously played by Yehudi Menuhin.
Also recognized for his violin solos in Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning “Schindler's List,” Perlman is a 15-time Grammy Award winner. In addition to being one of the world's most famous violinists, Perlman also performs as a conductor with leading orchestras around the world, including the Detroit Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, the Berlin Philharmonic and the London Philharmonic, among many others.
Perlman's İstanbul concert is organized by Piu Music and sponsored by Yapı Kredi Private Banking with support from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Greater İstanbul Municipality.
