The Tonhalle-Orchestra Zürich, which has won numerous international awards, will take the stage in Muğla's tourism hub Bodrum tomorrow. Under the baton of conductor Lionel Bringuier, one of the youngest active conductors in classical music, the orchestra will perform two different programs on the D-Marin Turgutreis Main Stage on Aug. 25. During the first concert, French soloist Gautier Capuçon will accompany them on stage. Regarded as one of the most prestigious in the world, the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich brings more than 100 musicians from 20 countries together. Founded in 1868, the orchestra has performed with prominent musicians such as Rudolf Buchbinder, Alfred Brendel, Gidon Kremer, Sabine Meyer, Joshua Bell and Yo-Yo Ma. The orchestra has worked with music director and conductor Lionel Bringuier for two seasons. Gautier Capuçon, one of the most talented cellists in classical music, was named "Talent of the Year" due to his recordings and live performances after winning the André Navarra Award in 2001. He also received the Borletti-Buitoni Foundation Award and Echo Klassik. Capuçon founded Classe d'Excellence de Violoncelle two years ago in Paris and gives cello lessons to talented young musicians all over the world, becoming their source of inspiration.
