Fazıl Say

piano, composer
About

Composing is always a form of improvisation: with ideas, with musical particles, with imaginary shapes. And it is in this sense that the artistic itinerary and the world-view of the Turkish composer and pianist Fazıl Say should be understood. For it was from the free forms with which he became familiar in the course of his piano lessons with the Cortot pupil Mithat Fenmen that he developed an aesthetic outlook that constitutes the core of his self-conception as a composer. Fazıl Say has been touching audiences and critics alike for more than twenty-five years in a way that has become rare in the increasingly materialistic and elaborately organised classical music world. Concerts with this artist are something else. They are more direct, more open, more exciting; in short, they go straight to the heart. And the same may be said of his compositions.

Fazil Say: Klangtüftler mit Herz
2015-04-23 Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin
"Fazil Say ist eben durch und durch Ausdrucksmusiker, auch wenn er komponiert. Seine Partituren wollen keine komplexen Konstrukte eines verkopften Klangtüftlers sein, sondern immer unmittelbar zum Herzen sprechen."
(Frederik Hanssen)
