About Ottoman classical music, Kudsi Erguner, artistic director of the project writes: “Unfortunately, because of a misconception, today this legacy is still called ‘Turkish classical music’. But it is actually the classical music of many different peoples who shared a common history within the Ottoman Empire. This music was not made to be appreciated according to an individual sense of belonging but according to the taste of a common culture, just like Western classical music.
