WWW.MUZIKLOPEDI.ORG: CONTINUOUS COOPERATION BETWEEN TURKEY AND LITHUANIA
In May 2010, NGO “Culture Art Fact” and its Turkish partner (chamber ensemble “Feverish”) expressed their willingness to continue cultural cooperation initiated by Mr. Tuğrul Göğüş, one of the leaders of the ensemble, a famous pedagogue and violinist, and the Incorporator and Manager of the Çukurova Music Friends Association involved in promotion of national and international polyphonic music. He is an author, translator and publisher of articles on the science of chamber music. He runs violin master classes on the international level.
The most recent project by Mr. Tuğrul Göğüş aimed at cultural dialogue with Lithuania is the Online Music Encyclopaedia www.muziklopedi.org.
For the time being, the initiator of the project is working on information about Lithuanian composers, musical compositions of which were performed by Turkish musicians during their visit in Lithuania. This is great news as the 4th international summer art academy “Art Baltica 2010” is approaching. Links to spiritually rich moments of the 3rd summer art academy “Art Baltica” have already been posted in the Online Music Encyclopaedia.
