ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Emirhan Tuğa and Turkish Clarinet Compositions in Diverse Styles

Recognition of national music of a given country and its contemporary composers is directly proportional to how well the compatriot performers, orchestras and state institutions embrace these works and by eventual engagement of well-known soloists and orchestras for the performances of these works. A successful example of such promotion is Finland’s efforts to popularize the Violin Concerto of its national composer Jean Sibelius.

Unfortunately, works of the composers that emerged with the encouragement of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881-1938), the founder and first president of Republic of Turkey, in search of universalization have not become internationally well-known as desired. Instrumental soloists who graduated from Ankara State Conservatory, founded in 1936 as the first Turkish music institution in higher education, and later increasingly other educational institutions, have endeavoured hardest for their dissemination.

Pianist-composer Fazıl Say, pianist Gülsün Onay, violinist Cihan Aşkın, violist Ruşen Güneş and cellist Dorukhan Doruk, whose works and recordings are circulating in the 21st century, are the most prominent figures dealing with these promotion efforts. In addition, in terms of symphonic compositions, conductors Hikmet Şimşek, Gürey Aykal, Rengim Gökmen, Howard Griffths and Asi Rasilainen have made significant efforts with regards to both live-performances and recordings. When famous international cellist Yo Yo Ma plays solo violin compositions of Turkish composer Adnan Saygun as part of his recitals, credit should be given to personal promotion efforts of our motivated musicians.

Emirhan Tuğa, a clarinet soloist whom I admire, due to his devotion to his country despite living in Netherlands for many years and his virtuoso performing ability, is the name that has become prominent in woodwind instruments. I closely witnessed how he chased down some forgotten compositions produced for clarinet during the early Republican period. He found the composers and talked to them about their work and included these pieces in performances. Tuğa’s efforts led to the creation of a recital program consisting of Turkish compositions produced for clarinet and piano. Emirhan Tuğa, who is equally fond of folkloric and “maqam” compositions, new music, jazz and avant-garde, has created an archival collection CD which can be enjoyed by curious listeners, music historians and musicology experts. The recording reflects the diversity of the Turkish compositions produced for clarinet-piano over the last 90 years.
