Violin Concerto No. 2

Violin Concerto No. 2

Karantina günlerinde bahar sabahları

(Spring mornings in the days of quarantine)

for violin and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: violin and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material
  • Order No.: LS 6167-01

Description

Fazıl Say's Violin Concerto No. 2 was composed in April 2020 from his home in the Turkish town of Urla on the Agean Sea. 'During lockdown, I always went for a walk on the empty beach very early in the morning. Each sunrise had its own colour, texture and atmosphere which subsequently flowed into the composition.' (Fazıl Say)

The four-movement concerto opens with the pastoral Ballad of Aurora. The ensuing Jazz Dance is followed by a slow movement entitled Quiet Morning. The epilogue of the final movement Sunrise presents a meditation by the solo violin, whose monophony captures the atmosphere of deserted streets and beaches, ultimately fading away through ppp.
