Iranian veteran composer and conductor Ali (Alexander) Rahbari has been invited by Antalya State Symphony Orchestra to conduct a repertoire at the amphitheater of Aspendos, an ancient Greco-Roman site in Turkey’s Antalya Province.

The concert is slated for March 24, starting at 8:30 pm. Rahbari, 69, will conduct a program featuring German musician Gustav Rivinius on the cello, Mehr News Agency reported.

Rivinius, 52, was winner of First Prize or Gold Medal in cello section of the 1990 International Tchaikovsky Competition, a classical-music contest held every four years in Moscow.

The repertoire includes pieces by Russian composer of the late-Romantic period Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) and German composer and pianist Johannes Brahms (1833-1897).

The compositions are Andante Cantabile, the second movement of Tchaikovsky’s String No. 1; his Variations on a Rococo Theme; and Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E minor, his last symphonic composition.
