Synopsis

Album Description
Raz-o-Niaz is performed by the acclaimed Sheyda and Aref Ensemble, featuring the beautiful voice of Alireza Eftekhari. In this recording, Alizadeh shows his compositional skills in writing classical Persian music for a large ensemble, incorporating western orchestration techniques and imaginative, compelling orchestral ideas. Raz-o-Niaz is thoroughly classical Persian music in inspiration, with novel and compelling approaches to form and orchestration. Raz-O-Niaz will take you on a powerful journey colored by a canvas of ancient melodies. The setar duets in Raz-o-Niaz evoke some of the most inspirational and mystic imagery found in Persian music today.

Tradition and Innovation Gets Five Star
01/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alizadeh is Iran's finest living instrumentalist. But in this work you find out what a great composer he is as well. The work is based heavily on the dastgah system of Persian classical music, but the innovations are stunning."
