Notes & Reviews:

The driving energy of Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince's Hot, Red, Cold, Vibrant recalls the motoric rhythms of John Adams' Short Ride in a Fast machine with some unexpected jolts added in. Written for soloists, chorus, and large orchestra in 2005, the rousing Symphony No. 5 celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of Galatasaray, Turkey's most successful football club. Requiem Without Words mourns the Muslims, Christians and Jews killed in the 2003 terrorist bombings in Istanbul, while Before Infrared creates the sense of a great mass of sound hurtling towards a bright and shimmering Shangri-la.

Allmusic.com
In Requiem Without Words, an anguished, deeply felt memorial to victims of the 2003 Istanbul terrorist attacks, the grim tone is entirely appropriate. The two shorter works occasionally call to mind the music of John Adams, but they are colorful, spirited, and evocative, and they don't wear out their welcome. The composer conducts the Bilkent Symphony Orchestra and the Turkish Ministry of Culture Choir in committed performances.

Fanfare
The Bilkent Symphony Orchestra offers further proof that Turkey has world-class orchestras, and the vocal and instrumental soloists carry out their unusual duties with assurance. Ince, one assumes, knows how his music should go - and does it ever go! This CD is highly recommended, unless your doctor has warned you against nervous excitement!
