Italian pianist Libetta to perform with Turkish pianist Onay
Turkish pianist Gülsin Onay and the Italian pianist Francesco Libetta will perform a concert on Feb. 9 at the Lütfi Kırdar Convention and Exhibition Center in Istanbul.
The duo will perform Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos.
The two pianists will be accompanied by the Istanbul State Symphonic Orchestra (IDSO) on the stage.
Onay, who previously performed the sonata with Marc-André Hamelin, Hüseyin Sermet and Anika Vavic, said: “We have also performed this work with Libetta in Ankara with the Bilkent Symphonic Orchestra. He is an awesome pianist. Now we will come together once again.”
Born in 1968, the Italian pianist, composer and conductor Libetta has given concerts all over the world. He has received commissions from European, Japanese and American associations and festivals for orchestral, chamber and electro-acoustic compositions. His repertoire as a conductor includes symphonic works by Wagner, Debussy and Mozart, as well as his own works, and ballet.
