About This Show

This year our Sound On concerts are going global! Join us for a new spinoff to our popular series which will feature instrumental artists across all genres from classical to jazz to everything between. You’ll continue to meet fresh faces experiencing a meteoric rise as well as tried-and-true musicians who are creating their most resonant work to date.

Join us for a performance to celebrate the album debut of “A Gentleman of Istanbul,” a collaboration with composer Mehmet Ali Sanlikol and Boston's self-conducted chamber orchestra A Far Cry. This symphony, which blends Turkish traditional, western classical, and jazz music, follows a seventeenth-century Ottoman world traveler, Evliya Çelebi, reflecting the cosmopolitan identity of this Muslim adventurer and celebrating the rich history and cultural diversity within Islam.
Throughout the performance, Sanlikol will be in conversation with Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing. In-person attendees will enjoy coffee and cookies in the lobby after the event.
I. Clocks and Bells of Vienna – Allegro
II. Death of Kaya Sultan – Jazz Ballad
III. Vegetarian Dervishes – Semai
IV. Alexander the Great – Devr-i Kebir and Vivace
