Ulrich Mertin, Michael Ellison & Hezarfen Ensemble Istanbul: MaerzMusik 2013


Gain insight into the diversity and expressiveness of a powerful generation of Turkish composers.

Far from projecting a single identity, music from contemporary Turkey challenges listeners with its resistance to categorisation. In “of light and shadows”, Hezarfen offers a glimpse of this diversity. From Tolga Yaylalar’s subtle microtonal, post-spectral landscapes, to Onur Türkmen’s delicate reinterpretation of traditional “makam” and “kemençe” within his monophonic concept of ‘line’ (“hat”) and Gedizlioğlu’s eruptive, post-scelsian vision of what it means to be Mediterranean (Akdenizli), “of light and shadows” showcases a bold young generation of Turkish composers each intent on using whatever tools necessary to create their own musical voices.
