About the album

Welcome to the world of “Serendipity,” a collection of musical stories that reflect my personal journey of discovery and expression. As an oboist, this debut album represents the culmination of countless years spent exploring the depths of my instrument and the limitless possibilities of musical arrangement. In crafting the arrangements for each piece on “Serendipity,” I found inspiration in unexpected moments and chance encounters with melodies that lingered in the recesses of my mind. The oboe, with its hauntingly beautiful voice, became my companion on this artistic odyssey, allowing me to breathe new life into familiar tunes and unearth hidden gems. In addition to my own arrangements, I am also proud to bring to light an original oboe work that has never before graced the ears of an audience. These arrangements, along with the original composition, mark their world premiere on this album.

“Serendipity” is not just a collection of melodies; it is a personal narrative told through the voice of my oboe. Each note is a reflection of my passion, a snapshot of the serendipitous moments that have shaped my artistic sensibilities. I invite you to join me on this intimate journey, where my oboe serves as a companion, guide, and storyteller, weaving a tapestry of sound that is uniquely mine yet intimately shared.

May the music of “Serendipity” resonate with you on a personal level, inviting you to discover your own moments of serendipity within a musical conversation that transcends the boundaries between me as an artist and you as a listener, creating an intimate connection through the shared language of sound and emotion.

With deepest musical regards, Serol Yapici
