Telling about his new works, Say also made a call to Tarkan. “I congratulate Tarkan. I hope we will have the opportunity to do something with him. A meeting. A meeting of culture, art and popular culture” said.


Speaking about Tarkan’s concert in Izmir on September 9, Say said:

“It is very rare in the world to have such a big, magnificent concert. This is not just a concert. September 9 is the liberation of Izmir… Society has rebelled against many things. Society wants to stay modern, to remain civilized and not to be marginalized. There are answers to these. At the same time, there are answers. concerts are canceled I think he made an innovation in Turkey. Tunç Soyer should also be congratulated. They did not give up, day and night… It was such a great thing.”


“Congratulations to Tarkan. I hope we will have the opportunity to do something with him. A meeting.. The meeting of culture, art and popular culture. Actually, my songs have found a place between culture-art and popular culture. Four Seasons, People are People… into the movies. “The current composer should be able to do anything.”


Saying that he talked about his closest relatives in the ‘Tree of Life’ and talked about the compositions, Say said:

“There is also a piece in memory of my mother in Tree of Life. There is a song called ‘My Father Ahmet Say’. ‘Ece’ is for my wife. It has a finale called Tree of Life. The first opening is ‘Hope’. Short short pieces. Also released as an album digitally It’s actually calm music that everyone will listen to peacefully.”

Say for Jamal Aliyev “He is one of the world’s leading young talents in the cello. He has won the title. I think both the music world and the younger generations will like Jamal very much” said.


Aliyev, on the other hand, stated that he felt ‘awesome’ and said:

“It was a great feeling to record the works of dear Fazıl Say that he wrote for his family. It was a great feeling and I am very happy. “


Say, describing his father; “My father was alive when I composed the piece. My father passed away when I was about to make a recording. It’s like I want to convey his voice to him every time I play the piece ‘My Father Ahmet Say'” said.

Say said:

“Even when we feel a little bit of hopelessness, it is as if we are going to the cemetery. Hope is so much everything in life. We should never miss a moment of hope. We should always be full of hope. I wonder if people found music that was born so peacefully good in this tense environment. It’s good for me to calm down and relax. Things are bad, you turn on the news on TV, drama, tragedy… We’re a bit tired. That’s why one has to try to remember one’s mother -even if she is not alive-.

I went to Kaz Mountains with the idea of ​​helping nature. There were 30-40 thousand people. Ovacik, Tunceli… There were nearly 20 thousand people. Amid all this stress, these concerts teach me why we do this job. What we do has meaning. In this kind of concert, 60 albums, 100 works, three thousand concerts have a meaning. For example, my music worked in Kaz Mountains. We gave a message here. This is not just about the clean flow of Munzur, it is also a message for people in eastern Turkey to be more integrated, to live together and not be marginalized.”
