Notes and Editorial Reviews

A film by Gösta Courkamp.

Fazil Say’s international reputation continues to grown apace, and he has successfully made the step from child prodigy to highly successful international star. As the French newspaper „Le Figaro“ put it: „He is more than just a brilliant pianist - he is set to become one of the greatest artists of the 21st century“. With his combination of extraordinary strength and absolute technical perfection, Fazil Say is a unique character of a kind seldom found in the world of classical music. His incredible gifts and utter commitment to the music are irresistible - and he successfully unites East and West with his personality and musicality. The film shows Fazil Say making music with Turkish pop icon
Read more Sertab Erener and interpreting Bach and Beethoven in Istanbul. It also presents excerpts from his compositions “Black Earth” and “Nazim” - the latter filmed during a performance in the amphitheatre at Aspendos.
