ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Having recently completed her Masters Degree at the Royal Academy of Music, AyseDeniz wanted to work on a project that could unite her skills and passion for classical music with her love for rock songs. She was inspired by Franz Liszt’s legacy, his showmanship as a touring pianist, one of the first to play to audiences as big as 3000 at a time. And she has been equally impressed with Pink Floyd’s music-making, their sound as well as the messages their songs conveyed.

During 2011, Liszt’s 200th Birth Anniversary, AyseDeniz started working on her endeavour: ‘Pink Floyd Lisztified: Piano Fantasy’. She arranged three of her favourite Pink Floyd songs as a tribute to Liszt’s compositions, style and approaches: from thematic transformations, programme music to imitation of the orchestra.

AyseDeniz wanted to celebrate Liszt and “his role and influence in the development of the ‘rock star performer’ lifestyle as we know it today with the music of Pink Floyd: the fathers of Rock Music.” The further she researched the more she felt that the classical musician’s and the rock band’s concepts and ‘philosophies’ were very similar “based around romantic heroes who isolate themselves from the world creating various ‘walls’ - sometimes political, social and sometimes emotional.”

Pink Floyd ‘Lisztified’: Fantasia Quasi Sonata was inspired by Liszt’s Dante Sonata (Après une Lecture de Dante: Fantasia Quasi Sonata) and other works by the composer, and it consists of three Pink Floyd songs in the form of a fantasy-like sonata: 1) Hey You (Roger Waters), 2) Wish You Were Here (David Gilmour/Roger Waters) and 3) Another Brick In the Wall (Roger Waters). The latter references both Dante’s Inferno and Waters’s song and AyseDeniz wanted to “paint” that image of “hell” in her rendition. “Hell” symbolising our wrongdoings such as war, the flawed education system, negative elements of mass media and ephemeral culture. AyseDeniz would like to break a wall, namely the one between herself and her audience. She wants to unite her love of classical and rock music and let the listeners and spectators experience classical music in an unconventional way.
