This recording is perhaps the first recording of the new language of Hossein Alizadeh in improvization, where he is going beyond the usual. While connected to the roots of Persian music, he creates a phantasy of the future in a free spirit. Recorded during a live concert at the J. Paul Getty Museum as part of the 1993 Los Angeles Festival, Hossein Alizadeh demonstrates his mastery of improvisation in an electrifying performance on setar. Alizadeh draw upon the rich heritage of Persian melodies in his creation of this colorful and highly energetic music.
One of the best albums I own

"Hossein Alizadeh is simply one of the most exciting Iranian musicians there is. The emotional depth and intensity of this performance is jaw dropping. At times, the music is subtle, gentle and barely above a whisper. At others, he is playing the thing so hard you think it's going to snap it two. While I admit to not knowing the finer nuances of Persian music, I have an excellent ear for music in general and can tell you that this guy knows what he's doing. M.R. Shajarian wouldn't tour with him otherwise! Truly a mind melting album."
