A student of Mithat Fenman and David Levine, Fazil Say has gained international recognition for both his immense improvisatory talent and his virtuoso performances of classical piano repertoire. A gifted composer of solo keyboard and chamber music, concertos and large-scale orchestral works, he has been commissioned by the Salzburg Festival, the Dortmund Konzerthaus, and the Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern festivals. Say has performed on all five continents, and his collaborations have included violinist Maxim Vengerov, the Minetti Quartet, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, cellist Nicolas Alststaedt, and mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa. Say is the recipient of four ECHO Klassik Awards, as well as the Gramophone Classical Music Award for the album Secrets with Marianne Crebassa. In 2016, he was awarded the International Beethoven Prize for Human Rights, Peace, Freedom, Poverty Reduction and Inclusion. In 2017, he received the Music Prize of the city of Duisburg in Germany.

This performance is lovingly dedicated in the memory of Sarik Tara by his daughter and son-in-law, Zeynep and Melih Keyman, on behalf of the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program.
