After receiving my scores, Anjelika Akbar agreed to be my consultant. It took me about 6 months to play the 8 piano pieces of the project, at a quality level that was worth to be recorded.
I don’t know how many sleepless nights I had during those 6 months. It should not be forgotten that besides pursuing a business life that required me to travel a lot, the lyrics of the 7 pieces had to be written, the arrangements of the vocal versions prepared, singers to be found etc.
Writing the lyrics was easier than I thought. But we had to work very long hours with Mehmet Esemen, who made the arrangements, in order to achieve a result that would satisfy both of us.
We recorded the 8 solo piano pieces at a 12 hour long night session. Vocal recordings took about 1 week.
Just before the project was over, I called Anjelika Akbar and asked if she had any objection to her name to be mentioned on the CD as my consultant. She said she would be very happy.
After I designed the cover of the CD and printed it, I uploaded the music to the CD.
The project was finished and I handed it over to its owner.☺
