THis beautiful disc has to act as a memorial both to the musical heritage of Istanbul and to the late Montserrat Figueras, singer, and wife to Jordi Savall. It's fascinating, very unlike the previous Savall/Istanbul disk since it is all Oriental music (where the Orient is defined as the Balkan countries as well as the immediate Near and Middle East) instead of Western composers reacting to Oriental ambience. The difference is both in the music and the means of producing it; it's impossible to imagine a Western chamber group or orchestra playing this music with conventional tuning, while the character of the Eastern instruments lets it sound right, rich and fulfilling. It is not 'Folk' music, as much of it is complex and carefully orchestrated; it is music composed by and for the people of the Orient. Standing by itself, this disk is a valuable and entertaining sampler of the music of Oriental culture when the Ottoman empire reached its peak of influence in the region.
