Sultan Abdulhamid Han's Lost Piano

Sultan Abdulhamid Han’s Lost Piano

“Abdülhamid Han’s Lost Piano” is the research project of Assoc. Pianist Tutu Aydınoğlu and Nuray Ocaklı. The auto-piano, which was built in Hamburg in 1907 by M.F.Rachals & Co. and bought for the Sultan via Castner & Co, was thought as missing for years. Some even assumed the auto-piano had never come to the palace in the first place.

However, it turns out that the auto-piano stands in its usual place, in Beylerbeyi Palace. A program was also placed in the auto-piano with the works that the Sultan liked the most. Among these works are Liszt, Moszkowski, Guno works, Necip Pasha’s original Hamidiye Anthem and one of the most popular works of the period, “The Turkish Guard”.

The project “The Lost Piano of Sultan Abdülhamid Han”, along with a lecture on the development of classical western music in those years and historical narratives on auto-piano, includes the performance of 32 works in the auto-piano by Pianist Tutu Aydınoğlu.
