Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
In these colourful, eclectic, dramatic works...Say impressively flexes his compositional muscles and pianistic dexterity.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Fazil Say's Mesopotamia Symphony 2 (2011) is a giant tone poem in 10 continuous movements depicting the fate of two Turkish brothers caught in the maelstrom of the contemporary Middle East. The brothers are symbolized by a bass flute and a bass recorder. This is basically a concerto for these instruments. Universe Symphony 3 (2012) is quite a bit more modest than the previous symphony, this one in just five movements. There is no denying Mr Say's talent and technique. This orchestra is excellent, as are the soloists.
