I fell in love with this hauntingly beautiful tune with Turkish instruments and vocals called, "Sil Bastan," by Turkish artist Sebnem Ferah, while watching the Turkish drama series "Hercai." Hercai is about star-crossed lovers Miran (played by Akin Akinozu) and Reyyan (played by Ebru Sahin). It is a story of revenge, forgiveness and the power of love. Here is the original tune as sung by Sebnem Ferah and found on YouTube:
And here is my own piano arrangement of the tune (also posted on YouTube):
And for those of you who might be interested in playing my arrangement, here is the score (which was done by Roxana Elena Belibou who is on YouTube):

This blog page represents my own original compositions as well as piano arrangements created off of others' tunes. I took 7 years of piano lessons throughout my childhood and have played off and on in my adult life. My piano is an 1884 Ivers & Pond Upright Grand, made in Boston, which I had refinished and rebuilt about 24 years ago.
