Details

A dramatic and emotional journey

In 2014, Ayse Göknur Shanal embarked on a personal quest, asking composers of Australian, New Zealand and Turkish heritage to write new works to commemorate the Centenary of ANZAC landing in Gallipoli.

This performance takes the listener on a dramatic and emotional journey through the landscapes of Turkey and back home.
