16 April – Welsh Baritone on Stage
Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic will be accompanying Welsh opera singer Bryn Terfel, who is much appreciated for his big, warm voice, and dramatically apt portrayals. The baritone Terfel rapidly rose to the top ranks of international operatic stardom in the 1990s. In 1990 he made his operatic début as Guglielmo in Così fan tutte at the Welsh National Opera. In his early career, he was associated with the roles of Mozart, particularlyFigaro and Don Giovanni, but has subsequently shifted his attention to heavier roles, especially those by Wagner. The concert is at Lutfi Kırdar Concert Hall in Harbiye, 8 p.m.
