CD Reviews

Truly a master-piece
08/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"IT IS EXCELLENTLY RECORDED AND EVEN BETTER PERFORMED. JALAL ZOLFONUN IS TRULY A MASTER AT THE OLD PERSIAN INSTRUMENT, THE SITAR. IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD THE HONOR OF HEARING HIM PERFORM LIVE, THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO TREAT YOURSELF TO HIS MUSIC!"
A beautiful example of the classical style

"i had the pleasure some years ago of seeing jalal zolfonun play live quite a lot. my roommate played daf with jalal's son, soheil, and soheil taught us about the traditions of setar in iran. this record was brand new at the time, and we listened to it quite a lot.jalal came to america to play some concerts with his son and my roommate, and i was able to watch them rehearse for several days. i attended a few concerts, both auditorium and private residence. this old fellow really has a magic touch. his son was already a setar virtuoso, but jalal had that indescribable something that comes only with a long lifetime of practice. this record and all the others of his i've heard are marvelous. this one will always be special to me, because it was my introduction to setar, a mystical instrument played mystically here."
