Premiered in 1933, Shostakovich's experimental work, Concerto for piano, trumpet and string orchestra has a neo-Baroque character and it is possible to see many references to other composers in the piece. Structurally influenced by Ravel, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky; the concerto was composed in a time wherein rehearsals of Shostakovich's opera Lady Macbeth of Mtensk District, which caused the composer his first denunciation under Soviet regime, were also taking place. Young Turkish pianist Atakan Sarı will interpret the concerto in his debut with the Turkish Presidential Symphony, and in the second half, Italian conductor Antonio Pirolli will lead the orchestra in the performance of young Turkish composer Orhan Veli Özbayrak's The Monk by the Sea, a work influenced by German romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich's tableau.
