Classic On - Classical Music Like You Never Heard It Before!

"A deeply feeling & technically skilled pianist that successfully communicates with her audience.”

-Prof. Manfred Aust

A unique classical musician accompanied by a pinch of scholarly ambition - staging monographic performances illuminated with handcrafted keynote speeches: Birce Polat is the personification of a Renaissance soul with diverse talents. A disciple of the renowned Karl-Heinz Kämmerling école with peerless technical command, she has the fingers for “magical sonorities on the keys”, according to her aficionados. 2020 still flows in the pianist’s own words; “what a year of milestones! For myself, a winter’s tale of well-received debut lecture recitals in my hometown Istanbul & in the capital Ankara!” Between her highly praised graduation recital in Lübeck in 2012 and the return to her homeland Istanbul in 2013 - two of the turning points in her career - Polat made a wholly different kind of debut: “flow state” in psychology being an utmost leitmotif in her life -  she published her “Interpersonal Differences of Flow Experience during Musical Practice”. This marked the launch of Polat’s academic career, defined ever since by her eclectic PhD studies parallel to being a recitalist. As a proud alumna of the respected Uskudar American Academy (Istanbul) & Academy of Music in Lübeck (Germany), her profound devotion to her artistic career is mirrored in her intellectual questioning and evergreen curiosity.
