“Does a rooster from Urla wake up Berlin?” In his article, which begins, he describes the conditions of composition of the piece as follows:
“Let’s go back two years.
The first months of the epidemic.
First days of quarantine.
First complete stops.
My wife and I stayed in our little house in Urla for about two months. For the first time in my life, a period without concerts, without tours, without travels, without stress had begun.
All the time was mine. It was the first long vacation.
Urla was uniquely beautiful in the spring.
Come on, the next door neighbor had a rooster. He beeped at hours completely unconscious. Before it gets dark… 03.45 / 04.15 or something like that…
And it was so loud that I woke up every time.
Moreover, it was a unique rooster, its crowing had an interesting rhythm and a unique melody.
I was someone who woke up at this time in the morning. And everyone except me woke up after 5-6.
What do we do for hours?
For example, he composed a violin concerto!
Dawn, dawn, sunrise, empty streets of Urla, deserted beach, raindrops, desolate sky, lonely land.
Fazil SayThe reason for quarantine days productivity is now understood.
The source of motivation was the neighbor’s rooster.
Thank you brother rooster from Urla. Thanks to you, many recordings have been made and works have been composed.
