A short flight from Heathrow will transport you to the capital of Turkey where you can soak up Turkish culture and also indulge in the sophisticated delights that the Istanbul International Music Festival has to offer.
The festival was established in the early 1970s and is held in Turkey's capital every June and July. The Istanbul International Music Festival offers its visitors a stunning selection of classical music, opera, ballet and traditional folk music performed by the world's leading exponents of their particular art form.
Much like the Edinburgh Festival, the Istanbul Festival has spawned a number of smaller festivals which focus on other art forms such as jazz, film and contemporary art which run alongside the main festival. Nowadays visitors can enjoy the main event of the Music Festival and dip in and out of the other smaller festivals while they are in the city.
The festival has enjoyed a long history of performing premieres such as Vivaldi's opera Bajazet. It has also hosted world renowned artists from La Scala Philharmonic to the Berlin Philharmonic, from the Kirov Opera to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, from Cecilia Bartoli to Julian Lloyd Webber.
The Istanbul Music Festival celebrates and showcases local orchestras and performers and provides them with a worldwide audience that they may otherwise struggle to attract.
