Description

1. Edirne – tutti, inspired by Trakya Although the first movement of the Turkish Dance Suite certainly has a somewhat wild and virtuoso gypsy flavor to it, the very beginning introduces the players ‘main themes’. I used the notes that are hidden in the names as individual themes: F, E, A and F, E, H, A for Ferzan and Ferhan, and B, A and B, S(es), A for Borusan. Interestingly enough, the melodic contrast already adds a Turkish flavor to the equasion. The general rhythmic pattern is 9/8, which is subdivided in 2–2–2–3, with variations that always stay close to the original pattern. Aleksey Igudesman
