1085: The Myrrha Trio at the Soulist in Alsancak


By Heidi Trautmann


It was a feeling like coming home on Sunday evening, 22 November 2020, 19:00 hrs, the first concert of this year for me and my friends at the SOULIST with a classical programme. How much I have missed music. Anticipation filled the place, a very intimate atmosphere, Roland Eyerich and Alper Cengiz welcomed the many guests who just as I felt at home.


Myrrha Trio was founded in 2019 by violinist Miray Çakır, violist Sinem Sadrazam, and violoncellist Püren Eda Gözer, all of whom are musicians in the TRNC Presidential Symphony Orchestra. They had selected for us an exciting programme:


-Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations for String Trio BWV 988

-Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Divertimento No. 1 for String Trio

-Jean Sibelius: String Trio in G Minor

-Astor Piazzolla: Oblivion

                            Libertango, arr. by Ali Hoca


The closeness to the musicians had the effect on me that I heard the ‘stories’ of the three instruments separately and I had to close my eyes to hear the composition in its wholeness; I had not realized before so clearly that the eyes also have listening properties. Makes me smile.

The three young and beautiful women – I believe that making music beautifies people – gave us great pleasure with their music and we could feel their deep involvement. The applause would not stop so we were given Piazzolla’s Libertango again as an Encore.

What a lovely evening, thank you.
