Partita in E

Program Notes

Partita in E is commissioned by Cihat Askin, my friend and one of Turkey's foremost violinists. I wanted to bring together the spiritual qualities of violin's past from purified, deep qualities of Bach, to the percussion's spiritual, raw, percussive qualities with Turkish folk and Ottoman court music, in an obsessive, hypnotic journey.
