Mehmet Sanlikol's most recent composition
Very recently, I mentioned in this Blog that I wanted to call authentic Albanian music to the attention of Dr. Mehmet Sanlikol, the multi-talented Turkish maestro who regularly presents Turkish/Greek musical performances in the Greater Boston area.
I was pleased, therefore, to read about Dr. Sanlikol's most recent composition that was touted yesterday in The Boston Globe. so here it is:
Musical mysticism was the afternoon’s theme, and Beethoven was in fact the only composer on the program whose name Gardner music director Scott Nickrenz knew how to pronounce, he told the capacity crowd in Calderwood Hall. (I don’t believe him, but he was making a point.) And more credit to A Far Cry for it. The city’s exuberant self-directed chamber orchestra has always clearly had a lot of fun performing its programs. This season, its sixth, the group appears to be having more fun in putting them together, too.
