With his extraordinary pianistic talents, Fazıl Say, 49, has been touching the emotions of audiences and critics alike for more than 25 years.
The award-winning musician and composer is famed for his improvisations and intense, epic reworkings of notable pieces such as Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 3, or a Turkish take on a Western classic in Fazil Say Violin concerto 1001 Nights in the Harem (2009).
His approach can surprise traditionalists, but his concerts are always original and highly memorable. He’s playing at the Barbican, London, in the spring of 2020. Early ticket purchase is highly recommended as this is likely to the a sell-out concert.
