Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Music on a Flying Carpet: Concerto Köln, a well-established early music orchestra, and Sarband, founded in 1986 by ethnomusicologist Vladimir Ivanoff, makes the sparks fly in an endlessly fascinating anthology of Turkish and European music derived from Turkish sources. The musical bridge that the two ensembles had built between their respective cultures was greeted so enthusiastically by their audiences that the fruits of their project were released on CD in 2003 - and were reward later that yxear with the prestigious German Echo Award.

New York Times
... a Western period instrument group jams with a Turkish band, setting off sparks and shedding delightful light on whole musical ages and cultures.

Wall Street Journal
The dialectic between the real thing - whose hypnotic, moaning vocalism and exotic harmonies suggest a kind of suspended animation - and its European derivatives creates a stimulating tension Even more intriguing, the European works are performed with Turkish percussion players, whose Eastern sense of rhythm ... makes pieces likr Mozart overture to The Abduction from the Seraglio sound almost as if they're swung by a big band.
