BORUSAN KÜLTÜR HOLDS BEETHOVEN FESTIVAL ON DECEMBER 18-21!

Borusan Kültür Sanat has commenced new a series of themed events to be held in rotation with BİFO & Fazıl Say Festival held every other year. This year’s theme, which not only focused on the composers but also different types of performance, was Beethoven. The Beethoven Festival, held from December 18-21, 2013, saw concert performances of the composer’s work, along with the world premiere of the latest project by Zeynep Tanbay, leading name in the discipline of modern dance, performed to Beethoven’s string quartet instrumentals. 

The choice of Beethoven has a special meaning on the occasion of BIFO’s 15th anniversary, since this was the composer whose work the orchestra performed in its very first season. As part of the festival held from December 18-21, three concerts were performed and the world premiere of “Symbiosis”, the latest project by Zeynep Tanbay, leading name in the discipline of modern dance, was staged to Beethoven’s string quartet instrumentals. Borusan Quartet provided the live music to the dance.
