(CUL) VIOLIN VIRTUOSO MINTZ TO PERFORM IN ISTANBUL.

ISTANBUL, Apr 28, 2010 (TUR) -- Renowned violin virtuoso Shlomo Mintz will perform in Istanbul's Cemal Resit Rey (CCR) Concert Hall on Tuesday, May 4.

Mintz (born October 30, 1957) is an Israeli violin virtuoso, violist and conductor. He regularly appears with orchestras and conductors on the international scene and is heard in recitals and chamber music concerts around the world.

Mintz began his career at age 11 as a soloist with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Soon afterwards he was called on a week's notice by Zubin Mehta to play Paganini's first Violin Concerto with the orchestra when Itzhak Perlman fell ill.

He made his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of sixteen in a concert with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra that was presented under the auspices of Isaac Stern and the American-Israel Cultural Foundation, and subsequently began his studies with Dorothy DeLay at the Juilliard School of Music in New York.
