Program Notes

Beginning musicians can experience music from other countries with this unique arrangement of a traditional Turkish folksong. Adding to the interest are additional percussion instruments and vocalized sounds of the desert wind which enhance the musical experience.

For Carolyn Minear, a gifted and dedicated music educator.

- Program Note from score

Üsküdar, (traditionally known in Italian and English as Scutari, and in classical antiquity known as Chrysopolis), is a large and densely populated district and municipality of Istanbul, Turkey, on the Anatolian shore of the Bosphorus. It is home to about half a million people. Üsküdar is also the usual name for the historic center of the municipality.

Üsküdar'a Gider İken (while going to Üsküdar) is a Turkish folk song about someone's clerk (kâtip) as they travel to Üsküdar. The tune is a famous Istanbul türkü, which is spread beyond Turkey in many countries, especially in the Balkans.
