Music of Ottoman-Turkish Women Composers

Presented by Volkan Efe at MIT Chapel, Cambridge MA

Jan 13 2018
Music of Ottoman-Turkish Women Composers

Please join us to hear music composed by women composers of Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey spanning 16th to 20th century.

500 year old Ottoman music tradition owes a lot to the contribution of women composers, performers and teachers of Turkish music. Oldest documentations and illustrations which have survived until now of women performing music are from the 16th century. Studying musical activities of Ottoman women help us both understand the Ottoman tradition and the place of women in the music of modern Turkish society.

We will be performing works of numerous influential women composers dating from 17th century
