In Search of Lost Sounds

A symphony by Emre Aracı

FILMharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Adam Klemens
Published by Kalan Music

In a letter to his patron Madam Nadezhda von Meck, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky reminded her of Heinrich Heine’s famous epithet: “Where words leave off, music begins”. With its power physically to touch our bodies with vibrations, music provides the creative artist with perhaps the most abstract, yet at the same time the most powerful, medium of expression. It endows the creative soul with magical codes to access a miraculous time capsule, where feelings - that words cannot express - can be preserved forever.

​Memories from childhood, visits to places of special significance, romantic castles, quotations from favourite authors, old paintings and faded photographs are all remembered in the symphony In Search of Lost Sounds. The emotions aroused by these accumulated memories are captured in this profoundly personal composition.

​Recorded in Prague under the baton of Adam Klemens, with the FILMharmonic Orchestra at the Czech Radio Studio No. 1, music historian, conductor and composer Emre Aracı’s symphony aptly enitled In Search of Lost Sounds invites others to embark on similar, individual journeys to their own past, with homage to Proust, who famously wrote: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes”.
