The former child prodigy and famous Turkish composer-pianist will give another concert in the Grand bazaar on December 25, 2011 at 3:30PM.
The first half of the concert will include hymns by an Armenian tenor, a Jewish choir and a Turkish hafiz. The Ottoman Military band will participate in the second half.
We attended last year's concert when only the military band was present and we loved it, but could only record on our i-phone because we had gone unprepared. The not so good but still interesting recording is on youtube under esercelebiler.
The web site for the concert is as follows:
There is good coverage of the Grand Bazaar in the slide show which is well worth watching even if you do not have a chance of attending.
I am hoping that certain posters here do not ask TA to have this post removed as they have done in the recent past, or if they do, some travelers to istanbul will get a chance to read it before it happens.
