Fazil Say

The pianist and composer Fazıl Say also sees himself as an ambassador – in two directions at once. On the one hand, he brings Beethoven & Co. to rural Anatolia with regular performances; on the other hand, he wants to make Turkish music known in Western Europe. He does this in particular with his own works, in which he mixes elements of Turkish folk music with the romantic tradition and jazzy escapades. In his "First Songs", he is assisted by the studied pharmacist and singer Serenad Bağcan: she too is a sought-after bridge builder between Western music and Turkish folk music.
