I got notice about this on my Facebook feed. You can read about it and listen to it here:

https://bis.se/performers/cakmur-ca...tnWTAJIxX67fz2-6Mv3xcQoWhB71-O9_hWrvNoWM

I think except for the Bartok Sonata, the rest of the selections are quite or even extremely rare.

A daring young man with technique, interpretation and repertoire to be reckoned with! It's so heartening to read that he is (obviously?) doing well in his career.

I will look forward to listening to these unknown (to me) works.

Thank you for posting the link.

Regards,

From the latest issue of International Piano, probably the most prestigious magazine devoted to all things piano:

"By contrast, I would assert that there are now many young pianists whose brilliance is complemented by character and originality, suggesting a reaction to such limitation. Can Cakmur, Federico Colli, Lucas Debargue, Benjamin Grosvenor, Alexandre Kantorov, Pavel Kolesnikov, Igor Levit, Beatrice Rana, Alfons Sadana, Yuja Wang(to name but 10) are all artists of rare distiction..."

Bryce Morrison(who I believe is a regular contributor to International Piano)

That's an incredibly distinguished class of pianists.

Thank you very much pianoloverus and everybody! It is always such a pleasure and honour to encounter such posts here every now and then. This community (though some members are not as active anymore) have brought me so much and even though I don't contribute as much I lurk around and read discussions with interest. Thank you all!

Here are Youtube performances of movements from two sonatas on the album, the second movement of the Enescu Sonata No.2 and the first movement of the Bartok Sonata. This was the first time I heard the Enescu and thought it was quite beautiful and simply not like anything else I've heard on the piano...so original.

Wow! The Enescu is such a captivating piece— and the performance displayed every nuance. Bravo 👏👏

My issue arrived yesterday, and in the interview, a few surprising things came out: for instance, at 12, he only had 6 pieces in his rep (one of them being the first movement of B's Pathetique) when he decided music would be his vocation, and that the Pekinel twin sisters' scholarship scheme allowed him to study in Germany when he was 17.

He believes that the music of the future will be the type exemplified by Adès (whose 2008 piano concerto he'd performed) - serialism, polytonality and minimalism all in the mix. Running 60km a week improved his fitness and mental fortitude thumb, and one of the three books which impacted on him was Brave New World, though he didn't elaborate on how. Maybe he will, in PW, in due course? wink

My issue of International Piano featuring Can Cakmur on the cover just arrived yesterday, a mere two months after Bennevis got his copy! Here are just a few more highlights from the four page article on Can Cakmur:

"He is only 25 but the recital disk he released after winning Japan's Hammamatsu Competition in 2018 possessed an exquisitely refined patina."

"But this recording debut allowed Can to demonstrate how profoundly he charts the rise and fall of musical traditions."

"Folk music is one of Cakmur's preoccupations at the present."

Speaking of the Enescu Sonata No.3 Can says :"While practicing this work I found myself thinking this is in no way a lesser piece than Beethoven's Op. 111."

"Despite the Turkish Republic's own effort to forge its own Western classical music tradition, only one great pianist has emerged from Turkey - Idil Biret. This makes Can's achievement all the more remarkable."

About his running he says "When schedule allows I try to clock around 60 kilometers a week."
