Mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa and pianist FazÄ±l Say share some tantalising, captivating and sensuousSecretsin this album of songs, centred on DebussyâsTrois Chansons de Bilitis, RavelâsShéhérazadeand FazÄ±l Sayâs ownGezi Park 3â which he and Crebassa premiered in 2014. Describing the recording sessions, Marianne Crebassa says: âSometimes we worked in a kind of trance â¦ there were some moments when nothing seemed to exist around us â¦âSecretsincludes Debussyâs discreetly eroticTrois Chansons de Bilitis, settings of texts by Pierre LouÃ¿s that were inspired by ancient Greek literature, and Ravelâs sumptuousShéhérazade, three contrasting songs that conjure up exotic moods rather than retelling the stories of the1001 Nights. They are joined by a work by FazÄ±l Say that is inspired by his native Turkey, but which moves away from the spirit of legend and fantasy:Gezi Park 3belongs to a series of works that he composed in response to the momentous civil protests that took place in in Istanbul in June 2013. Say and Crebassa gave its premiere in Bremen in September 2014, where it was heard as a âBallad for mezzo-soprano, piano and orchestraâ. Crebassaâs part is a wordless vocalise and the work is recorded here in a version for voice and piano.
