Burak Bilgili is an internationally acclaimed bass who made his Teatro de Scala debut in 2002 (Lucrezia Borgia) and Metropolitan Opera debut in 2004 (Don Giovanni). Burak is a recipient of numerous awards starting with BBC’s Singer of the World in 2003.
Bilgili and Gamsizoglu are getting ready to perform a list of songs and arias from Rossini and Schubert along with solo piano pieces by Schubert, Mendelssohn, Chopin and Rachmaninoff.
For the last two years, pianist/composer Emir Gamsizoglu attracts New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy classical music at Caffe Vivaldi.
"Every Sunday afternoon, this veteran pianist plays to a crowd at Caffe Vivaldi. Beyond tickling the ivories, he shares fun facts about the music he plays and the composers who created it. Not a classical music connoisseur? Trust me, you don't have to be. It's nearly impossible not to be captivated by the music, let alone his charm and passion. Plus, the performance is truly spectacular, and the level you'd hear in a concert hall for a fraction of the price." - Tracy's New York Life
