A turkish miracle

Fazıl Say, piano


Robin Ticciati, conductor


Chamber Orchestra of Europe

The debut of a new resident orchestra in the Haydnsaal at Esterházy Palace alone cannot be described as “miracle” – and does therefore not warrant putting Joseph Haydn's corresponding work with the very epithet on the programme. That said, the work of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (COE), this extremely agile, powerful association of international soloists, can very well be perceived as “miraculous”. And as Haydn’s symphony earned its nickname in the London home of the COE, where it was premiered, it is fitting to find the work next to Beethoven's also quite wonderful “Pastoral” on the programme of the COE’s very first concert in Eisenstadt. A wonderful performance is also guaranteed by the pianistic spontaneity and the compositional ingenuity of Fazıl Say, who seduces to perk up the ears with Mozart's Piano Concerto KV 467 and his own composition “The Moving Mansion”.
