Description of Event:
At this event, we review the work of great Iranian composers and influential musicians over the period of ca. 1850-1900 and we play samples of their work in an ensemble. We initially examine what we know about the evolution of Iranian/Persian art music over centuries and millennia. Then we get to the targetted era and examine the work of these composers and influential musicians from the political and musicological perspectives. We hope that, at this event, you enjoy listening to samples of Iranian music composed over 100 years ago and learn about Iranian Music (character, history, identity, modernization, evolution, etc.). There is going to be live performances of sample music from this era by local musicians.
