The Turkish embassy in collaboration with Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah (DAI) organized a piano concert by renowned Turkish pianist Tuluyhan Uğurlu, titled ‘Istanbul – A world capital’, at the Yarmouk Cultural Center on 8 April.

Uğurlu captivated the large audience with selections from his 2005 musical composition that depicts the beauty of Istanbul through his musical notes. The composition, which begins with words of Napoleon Bonaparte – “If the world were a single country, the capital would be Istanbul” – has been performed successfully in more than 450 concerts worldwide. 

The program at Yarmouk Cultural Center featured select pieces from the composition, including Istanbul, a World Capital; The City Where the Three Religions Live in Harmony; The World’s Oldest Shopping Center: The Grand Bazaar; Istanbul - Minarets and Towers: Sinan; A Love Story of Istanbul and the Tulip; Spiritual Sultans of İstanbul; and Autumn in İstanbul.
