In 2014, the year of its 15th anniversary, the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra (BIPO) is welcoming the giants of classical music. During the second concert of the new year BIPO will accompany Murray Perahia, one of the greatest piano virtuosos alive. Sascha Goetzel will conduct the concert that will be held at the Lütfi Kırdar Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC) on January 16, 2014 Thursday.

The extraordinary career of the American pianist Murrah Perahia has spanned over 35 years and has seen him perform at nearly every important music venue with the leading orchestras of the world. The Principal Guest Conductor of the famous Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Perahia continues to perform in the USA, Europe, Japan and South-East Asia.

Perahia, having collaborated with such legends as Benjamin Britten, Peter Sears, Rudolf Serkin and Pablo Casals, is also renown for combining his meticulously prepared repertoire with his expertise and musical talent. The artist is currently working on an important project, the editing of all of Beethoven's piano sonatas. Perahia is a Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Music and holds Honorary Doctorates at the Leeds and Duke Universities. Queen Elizabeth II awarded Perahia with the title honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire for his contributions in the field of music.

A multiple Gramophone Awards winner, the artist was also nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, of which he won two.
