Frankfurt Radio gives refuge to musician who fled Turkey

Paavo Järvi’s seventh season was announced in Frankfurt today and there was one big surprise.

The artist in residence is to be Fazil Say, the pianist and cross-genre composer who, earlier this week, declared he was emigrating from Turkey and settling in Japan due to the rise of what he called ‘conservative Islam’.

Stand by for protests.
