Istanbul Kemençe

with Chrysanthi Gkika

  • Greek, Turkish
  • Kemençe
  • English

Description

This course will focus on the kemençe in Ottoman classical music, as well as Turkish and Greek folk styles. We will examine some select makams, including Hicaz, Segah and Huzzam and select repertoire that derives from these, such as dances from Tatavla, “Segah Saz Semai,” “Hicaz Evfer” and “Olmaz.” Through the repertoire, we will examine the theory of each makam, basic ornaments characteristic of the style, and improvisation (taksim). The Greek folk repertoire will acquaint us with a more rhythmical playing style.

Fit for advanced kemençe students, this course will help clarify any questions or difficulties that have arisen during their training. This course will also be useful for self-taught kemençe players, as well as for players that are used to a different kind of kemençe – Cretan lyra, Bulgarian gadulka, or Pontic lyra, for example – and want to explore the style of the Istanbul kemençe.
