We first presented the young soloist from the Bergen Festival over 15 years ago--with his extensive performing and recording career since, Andreas Scholl (who will perform in Istanbul in 2008) has proven to be one of our most reliable early music vocal specialists.

This series is made possible in part by a grant from the American-TurkishCouncil, Raymond James International Holding (independent investment and financial planning advice and investment banking services in the United States and Turkey since 1962), and the American Friends of Turkey.

 

This year's festival (June 6 through June 30, 2008) looks at the myriad forms of chamber ensembles from major European capitals with a stunning array of soloists. We will preview two great baroque ensembles and two extraordinary soloists.
