Necil Kazim Akses (5/06/1908 - 2/16/1999)

Necil Kâzim Akses was one of a distinguished group of five Turkish composers active in Western music. He was a pupil of Cemal Reşit Rey in Istanbul before studying with Joseph Marx in Vienna and with Alois Haba and Josef Suk in Prague. He held various official positions in the Turkish musical establishment.


Akses left two early operas: Mete, written in 1933, and Bayönder, written in 1934. He served as director general of the Ankara State Opera from 1971 to 1972.

Orchestral and Chamber Music

The orchestral Ankara kalesi (‘Ankara Castle’) dates from 1942. It was followed by Poème for cello and orchestra, a Violin Concerto, a Concerto for orchestra, and four symphonies. His Atatürk diyor ki (‘Atatürk Says That’), described as a rhetorical symphony, was composed in 1988. His chamber music includes three string quartets.
