A weekend with Fazil Say

Fazil Say plays Mozart, Chopin, and Say A weekend with Fazil Say


The brilliant Turkish pianist and composer Fazil Say, described by composer Aribert Reimann as  “play[ing] like a devil”, gives a recital at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. On the program are pianistic chefs-d’œuvres by Mozart and Chopin as well as two of his own compositions inspired by political events in his native land: his 2013 Piano Sonata “Gezi Park 2”, and his 2017 Rhapsodie concertante for piano “Yürüyen Köşk” in its French premiere.
