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.He studied with his father, Ömer Erdoğdular, an important ney (flute) player who will be performing in this program, and later with Niyazi Sayin, one of the most influential Turkish musicians of the 20th century. His repertoire includes classical vocal music, gazels (sung poetry) and Sufi music, particularly that of the Mevlevi (Whirling Dervishes). Erdoğdular is joined by musicians on ney, oud (lute), kanun (zither) and kemenche (spike fiddle).
This concert is part of Carnegie Hall’s World Views and La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic (Feb 3–21).
