The Kudsi Erguner Ensemble - Peshrev and Semai of Tanburi Djemil Bey (1994)

«Along with his brother, Suleyman, Kudsi Erguner is one of the top players of the ney, a Turkish reed flute. In addition to his own recordings, Erguner has performed with Peter Gabriel, Maurice Bejart, Peter Brook, Georges Aperghis, Didier Lockwood and Michel Portal. His compositions and collaborations have been heard in the films, The Last Temptation Of Christ and Meetings With Remarkable Men, theater piece and film, Mahabharata, and ballets, Le Voyage Nocturne and Neva. Erguner's band, The Kudsi Erguner Ensemble, was formed in 1988, as Fasi, with the goal of preserving the classical music of the sixteenth century Ottomon Empire.

[In this record] this world-famous ensemble interprets compositions by one of the greatest musicians of Turkey's cultural renaissance, Djemil Bey (1873-1918). The artistry of both compositions and performances aside, there is a notably effective balance of ensemble pieces and solo performances by various instruments. The notes are, as usual with CMP, brief but entirely adequate.» (AMG)

Hi Radu

I downloaded the file OK but the ,rar file will not open. My software message says it is part of an .avi movie file.
I think the file is not what it appears.
