My aim is to make an international career as a violonist and to take part in important competitions and festivals worldwide and hopefully become one of the leading musicians.
As a young musician I was granted the priceless opportunity for a young musician to be guided by Pekinels and share their vast experience of stage performance. I also discovered that the top quality cello instrument which was made available to me, has already opened the way to more important musical achievements.
The project gave me not only the opportunity to make music with wonderful people but also opened new possibilities in the music world for me which I had never expected.
Being in a professional chamber music group has been a very important experience and opened new doors for me. The musicians I worked with impressed me immensely with their personalities and interpretations.
A chamber music group can attain similarity of tone, unity in feeling and performance only after a considerable period of working together. İn spite of this, we succeeded in performing in remarkable harmony within a short time and were fully satisfied with our concerts.
I strongly believe that this project gave me the foundations to establish a musical career and to think as an artist.
To be part of this project by Güher and Süher Pekinel made it possible for me to share with my friends intense musical feelings in Turkey’s most prestigious concert halls and to convey my musical ideas to large audiences which motivated me tremendously.
Thanks to this project I feel one step closer to professionalism. To share the stage with my dear friends was a great honour for me.
