Notes & Reviews:
Fazil Say's international reputation continues to grown apace, and he has successfully made the step from child prodigy to highly successful international star. As the French newspaper 'Le Figaro' put it: "He is more than just a brilliant pianist - he is set to become one of the greatest artists of the 21st century." The film shows Say making music with Turkish pop icon Sertab Erener and interpreting Bach and Beethoven in Istanbul. It also presents excerpts from his compositions "Black Earth" and "Nazim" - the latter filmed during a performance in the amphitheatre at Aspendos.
"... Say emerges as a searcher and a seeker, someone who dares to be different and is not afraid to step outside the concert pianist box to compose, improvise and experiment. We need more like him." -Gramophone Magazine
"He is more than just a brilliant pianist - he is set to become one of the greatest artists of the 21st century" -Le Figaro
