Notes and Editorial Reviews

Originally made in 2003 for Dunelm Records in limited edition, this album features rare cooperation between Turkey and Greece in the form of composer/pianists Panayiotis Demopoulos and Mahir Cetiz. Chamber and instrumental works with gently exotic sounds – indeed works which should be much more widely known, these were all first recordings. The composers perform together with the Anairesis Ensemble, which included several members who have gone on to very successful careers. Of the composers, Cetiz now works at Columbia University, USA while Demopoulos has held a number of prestigious positons in the UK and now back in Greece. A fine album of approachable yet unusually sonorous pieces.
