Product description

From the Artist

Dances and marches composed for and by Ottoman sultans
European Music at the Ottoman Court is an unusual compilation which highlights a hitherto unknown, or more so, neglected musical field within the study of Ottoman court music. Obvious from its title, the CD features works in mainly the popular European musical genres of the 19th century such as waltzes, polka-mazurkas, schottisches and marches, some composed by Ottoman sultans like Abdulaziz (1830-76) and Murad V (1840-1904) and some by Italian music teachers employed at court in Constantinople including Callisto Guatelli Pasha and Giuseppe Donizetti Pasha, the elder brother of Gaetano Donizetti. Other works include Rossini’s Marcia Militare for Sultan Abdulmecid and Inno Turco by Luigi Arditi, which was commissioned by Queen Victoria and sung in the original Turkish language by a British chorus of 1600 at Crystal Palace during the state visit of Sultan Abdulaziz to Britain in 1867. Also included are military marches by a lady composer from the Ottoman Empire, the wife of Omer Pasha, the commander-in-chief of the Ottoman armies during the Crimean campaign (1853-56), whose works were published in London newspapers of the period. Originally composed for the pianoforte the present album features string orchestra arrangements of these works, following long and extended research in the national libraries of Europe, by Dr Emre Araci of The Skilliter Centre for Ottoman Studies, University of Cambridge, who is also the founder director of the London Academy of Ottoman Court Music Ensemble who made the recording which was produced by Ates Orga. Released by Kalan Records in Turkey, the CD also has a 30-page illustrated booklet and a long essay (in English as well as Turkish) on works featured, also giving a brief history of this most unusual musical tradition.

Dr Emre Araci, Cambridge February 2001
