Best Artist Award Nominee

Emre Gültekin
In Tribute to Talip Özkan on Seyir Muzik/Uren Production

JL Tristandriessens&Emregültekin C4A0736
Emre Gultekin Cd

Turkish saz player Gültekin has recorded two duo albums with Armenian duduk player Vardan Hovanissian, but his tribute to one of his teachers, Talip Özkan, who died in 2010, is his solo debut. The varied tracks here not only display his virtuosity on the instrument, but give a wonderful introduction to the intricacy and intimacy of the saz’s repertoire. A Top of the World in the Jan/Feb 2022 issue (#174).
