He performed in theatrical plays and musicals, published several CDs and composed film music for the Turkish and German television. It is the particular credit of Hasan Yükselir, to have recognized the universal artistic significance of the Türkü and to have developed it both conceptionally and artistically for the international world and classical music scene. Thus, Hasan Yükselir must be credited with having written the first ever concerto for a traditional Turkish instrument and a western symphony orchestra with his Concertino For Three Baglamas, which premiered in 1996 by the Cologne Symphony Orchestra. His compositions include among others the intimate play „Saw Hands Which Bound Roses in Dark Earth“, the song cycle „Love is a Shirt of Fire “ and the cantata “From Yunus (Emre) to Nazım (Hikmet)“. He performs live in concerts and international recitals across Europe. Concerts in the Cologne Philharmonic (WDR), the Alte Oper Frankfurt and the House of World Cultures in Berlin constituted important milestones in his musical career.
