Surprisingly good 20th century classical music fro

by Leni Bogat on 4/3/2010

The CD "Turkish Music for Violin & Piano" contains the music of four excellent 20th Century Turkish composers. This is not music one is likely to stumble across in the course of normal musical events, but it is very fine music and for those whose special interest runs to music for violin and piano, quite possibly indispensable. There are three works by esteemed composer Ahmed Adnan Saygun, one of Turkey's most important composers and music educators. Saygun studied composition with Vincent d'Indy in Paris in the late 1920's and accompanied Bela Bartok to the Asian part of Turkey in search of local folk songs. His music has been performed by ensembles of the stature of the Julliard Quartet, the NBC Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna and French Radio Symphony Orchestras, and conductors of the importance of Leopold Stokowski. The other three composers are each represented by one major work. Ekrem Zeki Un also studied in Paris where his teachers included Georges Dandelot and the legendary violinist Jacques Thibaud. Muammer Sun was a prolific composer whose music reflects the Turkish folk idiom. And Sami Ucar who was a noted medical doctor and researcher in addition to being a respected composer and violinist in Turkey. The performances by Selim Giray, violin, and June Chun-Young, piano, are first rate.
