MUSIC >Young flutists take stage in Gümüşlük
The 14th International Gümüşlük Classical Music Festival, organized in the western province of Muğla’s resort town Bodrum, continued on Aug. 31 with a concert by young flutists at Toprak Ev.
The flutists, who attended the Gümüşlük Fesyival Academy (GFA) organized between Aug. 26 and 31, received their certificates on the same night from the festival’s art consultant, pianist Gülsin Onay. Their instructor Bülent Evcil and Italian flutist Raffaele Trevisani were also present at the ceremony.
This year, 22 flutists aged between 14 and 23 from various schools and conservatories across Turkey, as well as four from Bulgaria and one from Zimbabwe, attended the masterclasses organized within the scope of the festival.
Following six days of intensive classes, the flutists performed works by composers including Mozart, Haydn, Handel, Bach and Faure. The pianists Paola Girardi and Zümrüt Alieva accompanied the flutists in the concert.
The festival will end on Sept. 4 with a performance by Onay.
