Conductor Leading Orchestra


Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G

The Solent Symphony Orchestra, ably conducted by Steve Tanner, presented an exciting programme in the resonant acoustics of Portsmouth Cathedral...a rhapsodic account of the Ravel Piano Concerto in G. Refiye Mehmet excelled in the beautiful second movement...


Birmingham Mail

Boulez in Birmingham

Two workshops were given in the Adrian Boult Hall....the deeply thoughtful, gifted pianist Refiye Mehmet in some of the early, occasionally finger-crunching Notations.

Refiye possesses the perfect skillset to be a music director - she has the brevity to lead, the intuition to know when to follow and the skill of a musician that all directors dream to collaborate with. While working together on the world premiere of ‘On Air’, I got to know Refiye’s wonderful sense of humour, always tempered with a dedication to get the job done. Working with her was a complete delight.
