Contrary to the week before, this show had a perfect build-up and demonstrated the difference between feel and deep emotion. Rubato offers music for the heart and soul. Perfect set list, fine musicians and great sound in an intimate venue.
And, also in contrast to the week before: the performance of Sezen Aksu’s great Tutuklu was deeply moving. The ideal litmus test.
Again that remarkable ending: the venue cleared out while the musicians were still playing, so no encore.
Sezen Aksu’s Tutuklu, amongst many others.
