kanun konseri/ kanun (zither) concert


11 Subat Persembe gunu Halis'in odasinda nefis bir kanun konseri vardı. Gercek bir muzik insanı olarak Halis'in bu durumda da canli muzikten etkilenecegini dusundugumuz icin bu denemeye giristik.

Kanuni Sedat Ozkan bizi kırmadı ve esi Canan Hanım'ın refakatinde hastaneye geldi. Muzik aletinin hastaneye sokulması ve dolayısıyla konsere izin verilmedigi icin , korsan bir konser gerceklestirdik.

Herseye degdi ve kanunun muhtesem sesi Halis'i etkiledi bizce. Dogrularak dinledi bir sure. Sedat Bey Halis'in sevdigi sarkilara da yer verdi. Bu karsiliksız ve ozverili ,ince davranısı icin kendisine cok tesekkur ediyoruz.

not: Sedat Bey persembe ve cumartesi gunleri Osmanbey ve Levent Metro istasyonlarinda kanun calıyor. Dinlemeniz tavsiye edilir.


ON Thursday, February 11, a wonderful kanun (zither) concert took place in Halis' room in the hospital. We decided to try this because we thought Halis, as a real music person, might react to hearing live music.

Kanun player Sedat Ozkan came to the hospital for us, accompanied by his wife, Canan Hanim. We had an illegal performance because musical instruments and therefore concerts are not allowed inside the hospital.

It was worth all the efforts. We think that the kanun'sincredible sound affected Halis. He leaned upwords to listen to it for a while. Sedat Bey included songs that Halis likes. We thank Sedat Bey for his dedication and kindness without expecting a return.

Note: Sedat Bey plays kanun in the Osmanbey and Levent subway stations on Thursdays and Saturdays. We recommend that you go and listen to him.
