Classical music in Turkey, a long history and a promising future

Giuseppe Donizetti
In the light of my recent visit to Istanbul, and visit to hear Sascha Goetzel and the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra performing Haydn's The Seasons, I have written an article which takes a quick look at the wider scene of classical music in Turkey, including opera, to put the recent developments with the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra into context.

If you are interested in reading a little about Giuseppe Donizetti (brother of the composer) and his work in Istanbul, the vexed question of venues for performance in Istanbul and a hint of what other performing groups are doing then head over to The Culture Trip website for my article.
