Beethoven never actually called his Fifth Piano Concerto ‘The Emperor’ – it just seemed perfect for a piece that’s so magnificently larger than life. So who better to play it than the charismatic composer and pianist Fazıl Say? His Grand Bazaar is a musical tour through the colours, fragrances and crowds of Istanbul. Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, meanwhile, is simply a masterpiece of uncompromising spiritual beauty from a true giant of 20th-century art.
