“The Reward” for ensemble

Written for Ensemble “Room 5.22” (March ’11)

Will be performed in May 2011, Pelgrimvaderskerk, Rotterdam

“The Reward” is –as I see- the first piece of a song cycle which I’m planning base on Omar Khayyam’s (1048 – 1131) poems. (He is not known in western countries except english speaking ones. he is a philosopher, poet, mathematician and astronomer). This set of pieces, will be various settings and styles and this first one is a more close to a “modal rock song” format.

“Basina Baglamis Astar’dan”, for kanun and piano
written for duo: Esra Berkman: Kanun, Ayca Dastan: Piano (Oct. ’10 – Dec ’10)

Performed on March 16th 2011, Kanun Piano Duo Concert, Caddebostan Kultur Merkezi, Istanbul
Performed on May 23rd 2011, Genc Klasikciler Festivali (Young Classiscists Festival), Istanbul
Will be performed on November 18th 2011, Kanun Piano Duo Concert, Borusan Muzik Evi, Istanbul

In 2009, my quartet piece “Basina Baglamis Astar” (for clarinet, kanun, violin and violoncello) was performed at Young Composers Festival in Istanbul. This is a re-interpretation of that piece for that kanun and piano duo, but actually it’s completely a new piece which has quotations from the former one.
