Four master musicians captured,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Without You: Masters of Persian Music (Audio CD)
A live recording (I could not find reference to time or place in the notes) of a performance by some of Iran's finest musicians, greatest living classical vocalist Mohammed Reza Shajarian is accompanied by Hossein Aliadeh on the tar (lute), virtuoso kamancheh (spike fiddle) player Kayhan Kalhor, and on the tombak drum with some additional vocals Homayoun Shajarian (son of MR, and now a front line vocalist in his own right - see Mayeh-Ye Dashti & Mayeh-Ye Isfahan). Tar, kamancheh and tombak dance around each other as Shajarian senior wails the mystical poetry of Mowlavi, Hafez, Attar and Baba Taher.
The accompanying booklet provides some notes on the performers, instruments, Iranian classical music and poetry. The Farsi poetry sung by Shajarian is included along with English translations. Note that, as with many such recordings, separate tracks on the disc can form a continuous piece - on some players this will result in an ugly gap; MP3 versions may need the gap setting to zero.
