About

Ulvi Cemal Erkin was one of the ‘Turkish Five’, contemporaries who established the foundations of twentieth-century Turkish music by combining Western forms with their own folk traditions. His most performed work is Köçekçe, a dance suite inspired by the traditional köçek dancers of his native country. The Violin Concerto employs a classical Western structure but also includes a taksim section in its final movement, typical of improvisatory Turkish violin music. The evocative Symphony No.2 is the apex of Erkin’s symphonic works, its last movement consisting entirely of folk tunes he himself discovered.
