"Giving breath to the silent signs“

Revival of Oriental Secular Music from Post-Byzantine Music Manuscripts 

From the 10th century Byzantine music teachers created and developed a music notation by using musical signs. Since the late 14th century it has also been used for transcriptions of secular music. The quantitative evidence is impressive: A total of 4,200 pages containing transcribed secular pieces bear witness to a total of approximately 1050 works recorded, within them Ottoman court music, Phanariot songs, Persian Art Music, as well as a few Greek folk songs. For the vast majority, these recordings are in the so-called old method, a kind of musical shorthand. With the introduction of the New Method, these works remained unknown and obscure for various reasons; so these musical signs of notation remained silent.The Kyriakos Kalaitzidis's study "Post-Byzantine Music Manuscripts as a Source for Oriental Secular Music", published by the Orient-Institut Istanbul, gave a new perspective to the study and performance of Oriental Secular Music, as preserved in the Post-Byzantine Music Manuscripts. The transcription into staff notation, the publication, and ultimately, the performance and the recording of this largely unknown repertoire brings to life unknown aspects of this great Middle East shared musical heritage both in terms of music practice and in its deeper understanding.
