Hungarian composer Havasi to perform in Istanbul
Balazs Havasi, one of the most fascinating composers in the world, will perform at Istanbul’s Zorlu PSM on May 19.
After sold-out performances at the Sydney Opera House and the Barbican in London, the Hungarian composer will be in Istanbul as part of his Pure Piano tour with his innovative solo piano compositions for one performance.
The program will be made up of original solo piano works by the artist. The modern classical composer, who usually performs in the largest stadiums in Europe, will be playing to an audience sitting virtually right next to him.
A graduate of the Hungarian Academy of Music, Havasi spent several years teaching at the conservatory in Budapest. Between 2005 and 2008, Havasi published four solo piano albums in a row (Piano, Seven, Infinity and RED), each produced as a composer.
His own works clearly reflect his nearly 25 years of studies in classical music, while showing signs of present-day soundtrack, repetitive and new age effects.
The concert, supported by ALX Hungary, which contributes to Turkey-Hungary relations, will at 8:30 p.m.
