Ottoman Classical Music

MICHALIS KOULOUMIS and BAHA YETKIN

 

26 February 2017 @ COLET HOUSE, London (UK)

The highly acclaimed violinist Michalis Kouloumis and the distinguished oud player Baha Yetkin will perform some of the finest examples of the genre.

 

"Based on the modal system of the maqâm, Ottoman Classical music was enriched by the contributions of Turkish, Arab, Persian, Greek, Jewish and Armenian composers who all flourished in the territories of the empire. Considering Ottoman classical music as a regional or national tradition would be misleading, since it represents a taste and an art shared beyond cultures of provenance in much the same way as European classical music. The aesthetics of Ottoman music is the result of influences that range from Byzantium to the Middle East, Central Asia and India" (Kudsi Erguner)
