Event description

Description

The highly acclaimed Violinist Michalis Kouloumis and the distinguished Oud player Baha Yetkin will perform some of the finest examples of the genre.

Based on the modal system of the "makam", Ottoman Classical music was enriched by the contributions of Turkish, Persian, Greek, Jewish, Arab and Armenian composers who all flourished in the territories of the empire. The aesthetics of Classical music of Istanbul is the result of influences that range from the Byzantium to the Middle East, Central Asia and India.
