ISTANBUL- Hürriyet Daily News
Tuluyhan Uğurlu will present his work on Istanbul at the Hagia Eireni Museum.Turkish pianist Tuluyhan Uğurlu will give the 300th performance of his piece “Istanbul, a World Capital” on Oct. 13 at the Hagia Eireni Museum.
The concert will be organized by the Union of Turkish Hotel Owners. Uğurlu will share the stage with Murat Toraman on reeds, Doğukan Çokşeker on viola, Uğur Varol on electric guitar and drums, Umut Sel on contrabass and Gürkan Özkan on percussion.
Adrushan Kirkor Halachyan, Yako Taragano and Yunus Balcıoğlu will also perform hymns from three religions. The concert will also include a presentation of over 300 photos and short texts.
“Istanbul a World Capital” is a modern classical work of art, which Uğurlu has dedicated to Istanbul. Uğurlu starts off with the words of Napoléon Bonaparte, “If there was only one country in the world, its capital would be Istanbul,” and reflects the 3,000-year history of the city from the perspective of the 2000s. For the first time in this piece, Uğurlu departed from his classical sound to create a modern synthesis.
