Selected twentieth-century Turkish character pieces for solo piano
MetadataShow full item record
Since 1923, there have been hundreds of piano pieces written by Turkish composers in different styles and forms. However, these pieces have been accessible only in Turkey and in some European countries. Recently this situation started to change with the efforts of performers and composers. This document continues to rectify this situation by providing a source with insights into Turkish piano character pieces whose scores are easily accessed in North America. For each work selected, the document provides an annotation with bibliographical data and biographical information about the composer, discusses compositional style and technical challenges, and offers musical examples when relevant. Both teachers and performers of any level will benefit from the document by gaining pedagogical information about Turkish character pieces at varied levels.
