Two symphonic concerts enrich the section Music & Dance of Taormina Arte, masterfully directed by Maestro Enrico Castiglione. On August 12, an extraordinary orchestra, the Turkish National Orchestra (which last year just in Taormina has distinguished itself in a beautiful concert with Shlomo Mintz), directed by one of the most versatile conductors Turkey, Cem Mansur, for a Concert symphony for fascinating at the Teatro Antico in Taormina dedicated to Russia, with spectacular execution of pages like pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky and the Concerto for violin and orchestra no. 1 of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the prodigious solo Marianna Vasileva. On 14 August the Turkish National Orchestra, conducted by Cem Mansur, offers a second Symphony Concert at the Teatro Antico in Taormina entirely dedicated to German, with execution of pages of great importance such as the Concerto for piano and orchestra no. 1 by Ludwig van Beethoven, with Anthony Fiumara at the piano, the "Dance of the Seven Veils" from Richard Strauss' SALOME (of which we celebrate this year the 150th anniversary of his birth) and "Prelude and Isolde's death" from "Tristan und Isolde "by Richard Wagner.
