Atatürk and Music

Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey was a musically literate figure. Many anecdotes still prevail Turkish society with colorful accounts of his encounters with famous musicians of the first half of the 20th century. This project which I have started in 2016 with my Şirin Pancaroğlu Ensemble is in its second year and it explores Atatürk musically, with his ideas on music, anecdotes and performances of some of his favourite music.
