7. Kars – tutti, inspired by Kafkas Dance
This Kafkas Dance in 6/8 is a fast and furious finale, at times reverting again to the theme of the players the piece is dedicated to from the first movement: F, E, A and F, E, H, A for Ferzan and Ferhan, and B, A and B, S(es), A for Borusan. The middle ‘love’ theme quotes the names of Sabina and Dina (S(es), A, B, A and D, A), two special people who introduced me to a lot of wonderful Turkish music. The performers may start this movement with each player starting with eight bars of percussive playing on their instruments, one player joining after the other, before bar 1 starts.
