Turkish Five is a group name that some authors gave to Necil Kazim Akses, Hasan Ferit Alnar, Ulvi Cemal Erkin, Cemal Resit Rey and Ahmet Adnan Saygun At first, each member of The Turkish Five started out with neo-nationalist perception and benefited the colours of our native music. This is a common aspect. Later on, however, the feature of taking advantage of our traditional music eventually decreased and each of our composers developed their own characteristic way of thinking and hearing, which was their different side. In this declaration, the works of these composers known The Turkish Five which was mentioned above were discussed with examples and their common and different sides were examined and it was aimed to introduce them to the contemporary Turkish music.
