21. Century Turkish Symphonic Variations
Palestine Symphony Part 1 (Introduction)

Produced by MEM Music - Recorded in Istanbul (2010)
With the partial attendance of Istanbul Symphony Orchestra


Dear Readers,

On December 27, 2008, Israeli began its one-sided war on the isolated and besieged Gaza Strip. The Palestinian people in Gaza, although fell in the thousands, exhibited legendary resistance and courage; their steadfastness in the face of that brutality, which continues until this day, deserves to be honored, and always remembered.

Some wonderful independent Turkish musicians (Murat Malay & Tuğrul Karataş) from Istanbul have attempted to do just that: remembering Gaza and Palestine through this very beautiful Palestine Symphony, which comes in four part.

Please click HERE to listen to part one, and please remember Gaza and Palestine in every possible act of solidarity.


The Palestine Chronicle Team



"The Palestine Chronicle has been an invaluable source of information and analysis about Palestine and related issues, drawing from a wide range of sources, including many that are otherwise inaccessible to the concerned public. An independent voice, it has been trustworthy and reliable." -- Noam Chomsky, a professor emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"In the midst of an institutional media bias against telling the searing truth about Palestine, the Palestine Chronicle is a beacon. History, witness, analysis and ways forward are here, written with authority and humanity. Long may it publish." -- John Pilger, a world-renowned journalist, author and documentary filmmaker.

"The Palestine Chronicle presents independent commentary on crucial issues. The editors and their work constitute a sign of hope for a better future." -- Kathy Kelly, Co-coordinator, Voices for Creative Nonviolence

"The Palestine Chronicle is an essential publication for keeping up with the big picture in the Middle East." -- James Petras, Professor Emeritus, Binghamton University; author of many books.

"The Palestine Chronicle is proof positive that there is hope, that alternative media can one day overpower the corporate mainstream." -- Joshua Frank, co-editor of DissidentVoice.org.
