New chapter in our presentation of different sounds of the Middle East, an exploration we stated few years ago with titles of Ottoman, Turkish, Azerbaijani music. This time the caravan lands in Iran. The music on this CD is a small, specific part of the Persian repertoire called "classic", in particular the repertoire of the so-called Bayat Esfahan.
Unlike Western compositions where the writing tends to stifle the creativity of the performer, in the compositions of the Persian masters the freedom of interpretation is possible and highly appreciated as you can testify in this CD that wisely mixes improvisation and compositions.

Classical Persian music, as many other musical traditions, is based on the oral transmission from father to son, from master to student. The repertoire representing the identity of classical Persian music as a whole, in teaching, in learning and in performing is called Radif (Order). We can imagine the Radif as the framework of the entire classical Persian music and the main body of the old melodies, where coexist and interact 12 modal systems: 7 Dastgah and 5 Avaz. Each and every Dastgah and Avaz represents the development of a modal sequence characterized by the concatenation of several Gushe (part), melodic formulas with free or regular metric.
Unlike Western compositions where the writing tends to stifle the creativity of the performer, in the compositions of the Persian masters the freedom of interpretation is possible and highly appreciated as you can testify in this CD that wisely mixes improvisation and compositions.
