Guitar Recital: Eren Süalp
The young, prize-winning, international recitalist Eren Süalp has constructed a cosmopolitan program of contemporary writing for guitar, exploring music from his own country, Turkey, as well as Venezuela, Cuba and England. The range encompasses the witty twists and turns of Turgay Erdener’s Five Grotesques through Bayraktar’s Six Anatolian Pieces – evocative arrangements occasionally summoning up the sound of Turkish plucked instruments – to Leo Brouwer’s powerful Sonata (1990). Stephen Dodgson’s startlingly original Partita No. 1 brings a unique sound-world to the guitar.
