5. Istanbul – string quartet, inspired by Turkish pop music Having listened to and enjoyed a lot of Turkish pop music, which is, to a great extent, produced in Istanbul, I came up with a whole lot of short popular sounding themes in various keys. I started the piece with a more mono-harmonic approach, and after adding a slow and improvised sounding middle section for the violoncello, I tried to enrich and popularise the harmonies. The quarter tones can be played slightly higher or lower to taste, since in traditional Turkish music the destinctions are finer. Aleksey Igudesman
