Hong Kong, Bangkok, London, Singapore, Macau, Dubai, Paris, New York, Shenzhen and Kuala Lumpur are few of several places where the virtuoso Deniz Türkmen enchanted the listeners. The German-Turkish pianist and composer is now one of the absolute exceptional talents in the world.
His concerts are very versatile and always include different composers from the classical period, songs of different nations he has arranged for the piano, as cherry on the cream cake some own compositions.
Many of his own works reflect his mysterious personality, as he always leaves a lot of room for interpretation, which makes it interestingly difficult for the audience to gain an insight into the deepest sanctum of his inner world.
Being part of his audience is like going away on a trip to another planet – many people might think of an LSD trip when they read that, but music itself is regarded as a ‘drug’ by many individuals, as it is something magical that connects human beings, which Deniz Türkmen does with his repertoire in an outstanding way.
In fact, this ‘drug’ is the earth – his home – for the virtuoso and the “earth has its music for those who will listen”, as George Santayana once said.
