5.0 out of 5 stars Echoing through eternity 31 July 2010
By E. L. Wisty TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Two of Iran's greatest musicians, tar player Mohammed Reza Lotfi and vocalist Mohammed Reza Shajarian are captured here in a live performance of 4th March 1981 in Tehran. Students had been protesting against the revolutionary hard liners attempting to force their political, ideological and religious ideas on the University, and Lotfi himself, Head of the School of Music, had been arrested in a crackdown by the authorities and held for several hours. As a result this concert began 90 minutes late.

Lotfi's strings echo almost angrily through the night air as though echoing through eternity, as Shajarian defiantly wails the poetry of Hafez, singing of love in the face of such oppression. A fabulous dialogue between two masters essential for any lover of Iranian music.

Total time 51:43. Note that, as is often the case with Iranian music, what are nominally separate tracks form a continuous piece in performance, some CD players inserting a gap between tracks may cause ugly drop-outs. Sleeve notes in English, French, German and Farsi.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great performance; weak recording production 11 May 2001
By M. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The concert performance is great, and the music is great as well. I'd recommend the album to anyone. I should warn that there is a very unnatural sounding echo across the entire recording, which at loud volumes is very noticable and can get pretty annoying. Maybe some people don't notice it, but I sure do--Every note happens twice. Moreover, it seems like a studio-added, digital echo; making me think that the remastering may have been done in bad taste. If anyone has any ideas of how to get a copy of a clean recording of this concert, please post them here!! Technical gripes aside, Shajarian totally rocks, and this concert is amazing.
--------
(I later found out from the producer of this CD that the echo is a tape delay effect turned on on the 2 track tape recorder used to record this concert. Apparently such effects were in vogue at the time. There's no existing recording of this concert without the echo.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A must listen CD 13 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best performance of two greatest masters in Iranian classical music. I enjoy it every single time I listen to it. It will take you up from earth. Lotfi on tar is expressing his deep artisitic thoughts and anger on the political situation when this CD was recorded. I rated as a must listen CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what the magic of music is all about 19 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The best music to me is the music that can transcend the body, the intellect, and the emotion to reach the soul. Unfortunately, we see a very small percentage of music today deliver to that true potential. This recording comes through in this regard with flying colors. It is a masterful delivery of music that goes well beyond the incredible technique of the two artists to give us a magical experience in sound and poetry.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cats - Swinging! 4 Jan 2006
By jive rhapsodist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I got turned on to this CD from an internet news group, so I thought I'd return the favor. This is Iranian classical music at its most austere and its most focused. 2 masters, as serious as your life. This is the only Iranian classical CD I've heard that I would categorize as essential. After you listen, rent a Kiarostami film. This music and his films are completely different from each other, but they interpenetrate in terms of an approach to time and scale. Something I intuit as being fundamentally (pardon this word!) Iranian.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have CD 23 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Abu-Ata Concert is a CD issue of one of the greatest Middle Eastern Concerts ever recorded. Lofti's musicality and Sharjarian's voice are full of power and grace. Outstanding
