Ruben Gazarian to conduct Zurich Chamber Orchestra in Istanbul

PanARMENIAN.Net - Sergio Tiempo, a pianist of Argentinean and Venezuelan origin, will come to Istanbul for a concert with an international team along with him. The Zurich Chamber Orchestra, founded after World War II, will accompany Tiempo on April 19 at İş Sanat Concert Hall, Today's Zaman reports.

Armenian conductor Ruben Gazarian, laureate of the 1st Sir Georg Solti International Conducting Competition in Frankfurt in 2002, will direct the orchestra, which will perform pieces by Chopin, Mozart and Dvořák.

For Tiempo, his entire music career has been a process of learning and evolution. “The crucial points in my career were marked by musical encounters which transformed me as a musician rather than particular career-making events,” he says.

Tiempo's personal music preferences vary in a wide range of genres. “I love jazz and Brazilian music,” he says. “I also love tango. But I also enjoy pop, rock, rap, soul, salsa, meringue and so on. I have no limitations in taste as long as it's authentically and beautifully done.”
