Bezmârâ: In Search of the Lost Sound

The Bezmârâ Ensemble, directed by Fikret Karakaya

Published by Kalan Music
£20.00 / $25.40 / €23.26 ($/€ approx)

A marvellous recording by the doyen of early Turkish court music, Fikret Karakaya, from Kalan Music, published in 2000.

The Bezmârâ Ensemble, specialised in the interpretation of early Ottoman music, owning instruments some of which have otherwise disappeared, was founded in 1996 by Fikret Karakaya on the occasion of the musicological project, whose purpose was to recreate, on ancient instruments the compositions which appear in various old collections, and which contemporary musicians had abandoned.
