Product Description

Product Description

Seven hundred years after his poetry swept the Persian world, Molavi, better known in the West as Rumi, can still be heard within the rhythms and phrasings of Persia's classical music. On Through Eternity, Iran's acclaimed Dastan Ensemble brings together the lush musical landscape of Molavi's Persia and his most inspiring words into one unforgettable evening of performance. Six exquisite and soulful tracks of virtuoso instrumental and vocal musicianship in homage to Molavi, a net of jewels reflecting both the allure of Persia's musical past and a bold vision of its future.

About the Artist

Founded in 1991, the ensembles name means 'musical sound' or 'ballad'. The musicians have a grand vision: to bring back to life the wonderful repertoire of Persian classical music. The compositional style of the members merges tradition and progress; the inclusion of both traditional and contemporary poetry by Hafez, Rumi and Nezami among others has made the Dastan Ensemble a household word among both Iranians and a large international audience in many countries. The ensemble has toured widely throughout Europe, the Middle East, North America and North Africa. Several of their recordings have won international awards in Germany and France.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent work... 22 Sept. 2000
By Arash Moghaddam - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I respect the opinion of everyone who has taken the time to express their views. This CD is without a doubt a jewel to possess in one's collection, because the artists have struck a brilliant balance between traditional and contemporary Persian music. From start to finish Shahram Nazeri and the masterful musicians perform flawlessly with pure energy and feeling. My suggestion is that you buy this album, turn off all the lights and other distractions in the world and turn up the volume as you take in the love and spiritual high that Mr. Nazeri's voice exudes. Bravo to the Dastan Ensemble. It's a rush...

5.0 out of 5 stars Nazeri's best ablum by far 22 Dec. 1999
By Bobby N - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have been a Nazeri fan for quite a while and I have enjoyed most of his CD's. But he has outdone himself with this CD! The selection of poems by Molana (Rumi) and Hafez, and the musical arrangements are absolutely phenomenal! This is especially enhanced with Kalhor's skillful performance. I highly recommend this CD to all Nazeri and Molana fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Stuff! 21 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As Rumi becomes more and more popularized in the west with syrupy renderings springing up at the bookstores like ragweed it is wonderful that a recording like this is available to the public! Here are sincere and disciplined musicians who are working from the heart and not out of your wallet! This is the real stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nazeri and Dastan Ensemble impress me 11 Aug. 2000
By arman karimi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
this album is a great production but there are a few problems Good Points: Hossein Behroozinia amazes me on the Barbat(Ood), he is truly the master of Barbat. Pejman Hadadi is a great new addition to the Dastan Ensemble
bad Points: the ley-leying of Nazeri on the Part 2 Mahur, even a little kid can do that
Overall: Tasnif Ab e Hayat e Eshgh is the highlight of the album The Setars of Hamikd Motebassem and Kayhan Kalhor in part 1 Bayat e Esfehan is great. The Ghateyeh zarbi is a great performance of Bayat e esfehan. nazeri should have given Kalhor some time to taknavaz (solo performance) in Part 2 Mahur.
Overall a good album for people who like Asil music

4.0 out of 5 stars Nazeri and Dastan Ensemble impress me 11 Aug. 2000
By arman karimi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album had a terrific performance of Bayat e Esfehan on Part 1, With tasnifs Ab e Hayat e Eshgh and Dar Asheghi Peecheedeeam. The Ghateyeh Zarbi was great and the Saz o Avaz's were good too. But on Part 2 Mahur the album got out of hand. The music was great still but Nazeri was ley-leying and it made it sound unproffessional.
The Musicians: 1. Hossein Behroozinia-he did great on the barbat(Ood), he proved he is the master of Barbat in Iran
2. Kayhan kalhor- he did great on setar in part 1 and superb job on the kamancheh in Part 2
3. Hamid Motebassem-Motebassem was great on setar in part 1 and great on Tar in part 2
4. Pejman Hadad-Pejman was great on Tombak and Daf in Part 1, His daf was exrilifying. He di good on Tombak in Part 2
Poems: 1. The Poems of Molavi(Rumi) were great on Part 1 especially the Ab e Hayat e Eshgh poem
2. Nazeri messed up Hafez's Del Meeravad zeh dastamn in part 2. THe poem is great but nazeri did not perform it well.
Overall a great album with a few small exceptions.
