This is my newest piano arrangement of a beautiful tune by Contemporary Turkish composer Aytekin Atas called Cevaplar Kitabi. It is from the period drama series called Calikusu or Love Bird (and can be found on Netflix and on YouTube with English subtitles). It is set in 1912 Istanbul and has a beautiful romantic couple with great chemistry (they fell in love while filming the series and have recently married!). Here is the original piece posted on YouTube:
This piece while played in the drama series also has an overlay of a haunting Armenian flute-like instrument called a Duduk which I try to replicate in the middle section of the piece. Unfortunately that part, which is my favorite, doesn't seem to be in this YouTube recording. As always, thanks for listening and enjoy!

This blog page represents my own piano arrangements created off of other's 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 which I had refinished and rebuilt about 24 years ago.
