Calling the Raven - Suzanne Teng, ocarina/Gilbert Levy, saz (Turkish long necked lute)
“Calling the Raven” - The simplicity of how I played the ocarina in this piece is different from how I find I usually play it. The simple melody on the low chamber followed by the response of the higher chamber felt like a call to a special animal spirit. We have a lot ravens who visit us on our property and we always enjoy their dances, their bathing in our fountain and their majestic black bodies soaring overhead. Gilbert adds his magic on the saz, a Turkish long necked stringed instrument.
