AllMusic Review by

Kudsi Erguner recorded this album featuring alternating solo performances by two modern masters of the tanbur, Abdi Coskun and Fahreddin Cimenli. The tanbur is the most commonly used lute-like instrument in Turkish art music. The musicians here fully exploit the rich, sonorous timbre of the instrument, which can be either plucked or bowed.
