Description

In this course, we will focus on the music, compositions, styles and culture of Greek, Armenian, Jewish and Turkish musicians who lived in Istanbul from the 17th to the 20th century. While the 17th century was the era when the unique style of the Ottoman music was formed, the 18th century is known as the era that it reached its excellence. There were many prominent composers of Ottoman music, some of which will be covered during this course, including Nayi Osman Dede, Tabi Mustafa Efendi, Kemani Hızır Ağa, Tanburi Zaharya, Dilhayat Kalfa, Sultan Selim III. Many of their compositions were considered as the culminating point of the synthesis of Eastern music, which was created during that period of time. The compositions we will be studying in this course include Saba Saz Semai by Zaharya, Rast Peşrev by Nayi Osman Dede, Büzürg Peşrev by Dilhayat kalfa. Using these compositions, we will learn various makams, such as Saba, Rast and Büzürg.
