Notes & Reviews:

"The piano pieces you are about to listen to in this CD and which I have been performing throughout my professional career, truly represent a 'pianist's piano music.' There are also some vivid allusions to Turkey and Anatolia. In my younger days, I was also extremely fond of composing jazz variations of famous classical works, and we have included a few examples here. Throughout the years, I have always made a point of playing these pieces in my concerts, sometimes as an 'encore piece', sometimes as part of a themed performance or even as an 'adaptation.' Music connoisseurs who know me also know many of these works. Film-maker and writer Andrei Tarkovsky made an observation which I greatly admire: 'Art is born out of an ill-designed world.' So here are some humble examples as my attempt to explain a life though music. This is the first time I have assembled these pieces, some well-known, some not so familiar, together in one album." -- Fazil Say Detailed track-list: . Ses, op.40b -2012- . Kumru, op.12/2 -2001- .
