The Modern Classics: A Vicem 58 and a World Class Pianist!
THE MODERN CLASSICS: A VICEM 58 AND A WORLD CLASS PIANIST
We recently met world class pianist Hande Dalkilic, who as it turns out, is a Vicem Yachts fan! Ms. Dalkilic is a young virtuoso and one of the brightest stars of the new generation of Turkish pianists. When not working as a Professor of music at the Hacettepe University, or traveling the world as a sought after concert player, Dalkilic can be found sailing across the waters of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, a passion she has enjoyed for the last 15 years. Says Dalkilic: "The serenity I feel while sailing, coupled to the demands imposed by the sails and the helm, is like playing a difficult concert, challenging yet rewarding. And though sailing is my favorite, I would equally enjoy voyaging aboard a classic Vicem. As you can imagine, all that perfectly varnished wood appeals very much to a pianist. I have been onboard every brand of boat and a Vicem's craftsmanship is the only one that can be called piano-grade, if such a thing exits", she concludes with a hearty laughter. On April of this year, after performing a recital in Boston, Ms. Dalkilic quickly visited Fort Lauderdale, where we filmed her impromptu performance inspired by Vicem Yachts. "I picked a piece that perfectly illustrates the essence of something that is both thoroughly classic yet undeniably modern ". Rudi Herbert, of marketing company Ideas in Blue, had this to say: "This performance was arranged over a period of less than two hours in one of the auditoriums at Florida International University in Miami, so she did not have time to really prepare. We agreed that if she missed any parts or felt unhappy about the results, we would overlay the music from one of her CDs, which is standard procedure. Yet, after 62 takes, she was able to repeat the same notes within about 1/2 second delay on whatever part of the piece we asked her to repeat to get different angles. It was one of the most amazing things I have witnessed. She was the perfect match for the Vicem 58, extremely solid and reliable". Vicem Yachts and Hande Dalkilic are in talks for a special concert during one of the upcoming boat show events in America, so classical music lovers stay tuned.
