Concert at Carnegie Hall

The Venetian Republic linked the Byzantine and Ottoman empires with Europe. Ahmet Erdoğdular, one of Turkey’s foremost vocalists, is dedicated to preserving and promoting the classical vocal tradition from Ottoman Turkey that many Europeans would have first heard in Venice centuries ago. His repertoire includes classical vocal music, ghazals (sung poetry), and Sufi music, particularly that of the Mevlevi (Whirling Dervishes).

Erdoğdular is joined by musicians on

ney, Omer Erdogdular

oud (lute), Yurdal Tokcan

kanun (zither), Goksel Baktagir

and kemenche (spike fiddle), Derya Turkan
