Product description

Product Description

Fazil Say's first symphony, 'Istanbul', is a tribute to the legendary main Turkish city, a bridge between Europe and Asia, an absolutely exciting universe. Each movement is representative of something unique and specific about the city. Mixing Occidental music with turkish folkmusic, much of this inspiration appears to have come from places within and around the city that Say has lived for almost ten years. This is the third recording of works composed by Fazil Say, following the successful 'Black Earth' [V4954] released in 2003 and '1001 Nights in the Harem' [V5147] released in 2009. Fazil Say: Naturally, the Istanbul that I have been trying to describe was always a nostalgic, dreamy, vintage Istanbul. The composer, the work, the ney player, everyone is in search of that Istanbul. And what they want to find, what they want to ome back to, is the hijaz theme of Nostalgia which comes before the F sharp formation at the beginning of our symphony. And just as the symphony rose through the rustling of the waves of the Sea of Marmara at the very beginning, and so at the end it will be buried in the waves again with hijaz makam theme.
