Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) with the support of the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the 48th Istanbul Music Festival will meet with music lovers virtually between 18 September and 5 October 2020. Curated around this year’s theme, The Enlightened World of Beethoven, the festival concerts are currently being filmed at historical venues in Istanbul and various cities of Europe for audiences to enjoy on their screens.
