"My musical passions have always been the Classics and the orchestra and, therefore, to become both a composer and a conductor was a natural progression. All the works on this recording, written after I had 'outgrown' my experimental period, are intended, therefore, to address the widest possible audience." – Álvaro Cassuto
   
Say, F.: Symphonies Nos. 2, 'Mesopotamia', and 3, 'Universe' (Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic, Aykal) Say, F.: Symphonies Nos. 2, "Mesopotamia", and 3, "Universe" (Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic, Aykal)
naïve: V5346

Fazil Say's 2nd Symphony 'Mesopotamia' is scored for large orchestra and the unusual solo instruments of bass flute, bass recorder and theremin. Together they create a sound world of otherworldly beauty and menacing tension. His 3rd Symhony, 'Universe,' derives themes from modern astrophysics, including dark matter, the discovery of earth-like planets, the so-called God particle and the expanding universe.
