STOP PRESS – Unfortunately Gűlseren Sadak has a health issue and the recital for 7th October has had to be cancelled.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

By Margaret Sheard…….

We were delighted to learn of a forthcoming piano recital at Bellapais Abbey by our dear friend Gűlseren Sadak who will be joined by Fikri Toros to play Schubert’s Gulseren SadakMarche Militaire for 4 hands.   The concert will be on Friday 7th October starting at 8.30pm and with a further 5 solo pieces by Gűlseren it will be a wonderful concert under the theme Love and Music for Peace which will also include the music of Bach, Mozart, Rachmaninov and Ravel.  The concert is part of the 14th International North Cyprus Music Festival 27th September to 31st October 2016.

We have known Gűlseren, who we call Rosa, for many years and always try to attend her annual recitals at Bellapais.  Music has been her passion for almost all of her life and she has enthralled audiences worldwide with her wonderful gift.Fikri Toros

We are also pleased that Fikri Toros will be joining Gűlseren.  Fikri is also a very accomplished pianist and has performed many recitals himself as well as having a very busy schedule as a local businessman and President of the Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce.
