Classical music scene revived in Bodrum
ISTANBULThe 12th International D-Marin Classical Music Festival, which opened on Aug. 20 in the western town of Bodrum, will continue tonight with a concert by Spanish singer Monica Molina.
Molina became everyone’s favorite with her “Mar Blanca” album, in which she covered the best songs by her father, Spain’s legendary Antonio Molina.
This time the audience will see her with a group of master musicians on stage. With her passionate songs, elegance and velvety voice, Molina will sing her newest and most special songs against the backdrop of a symphony orchestra for the first time at the festival in Bodrum.
The event will continue on Aug. 24 with a masterpiece by Fazıl Say, the “Nazım Oratorio.” The concert will feature Say on the piano, Genco Erkal as the narrator soloist, Serenad Bağcan as the vocal soloist and surprising performances from Arda Aktar, İdil Bursa, Gökçe Çatakoğlu and Çetin Özen.
One of the biggest cellists of our time, Gautier Capuçon, will be on the Bodrum stage on Aug 25. The legendary group of musicians known as the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra will also be on hand to turn the concert into an even more memorable event.
The festival’s last performance will be given by Lura, featuring a selection of new and old songs, on Aug. 27.
