Album Notes
Ensemble Moshtaq

Persian Art Music Ensemble

Avaz-e Dashti (Pishdaramad, Daramad, Tcharmezrab, Tasnif, Mollah Nasi: (39:54)
Dastgâh Mâhur (Zarbi, Daramad, Kereshmeh, Dad, Delkash, Razavi, Khavar: (25:14)

Ensemble Moshtaq (Performer):

Madjid Khaladj (Daf,Tombak), Mahmoud Tabrizi-Zadeh (Kamanche), reza Ghassemi (Setar), Homa Niknam (vocal):

Classical music for singer, setar lute, kamantche fiddle and percussion. Moshtaq has an original approach to classic forms, but most striking here is the magnificent singing by a young female vocalist, Homa: powerful and subtle both. The instrumental backings provide support of a power only half-masked by restraint. The music consists of two extended vocal suites.

Adequate notes.

Simple and Elegant
If you're familiar with classical Persian music, you'll know Reza Ghassemi from his timeless album with Shahram Nazeri and Jalal Zolfonoun "Gol-e Sad Barg". This album is no less beautiful or well put together. If you're not familiar with classical Persian music, don't be fooled by the simplicity of the orchestration (setar lute, kamanche fiddle, and tombak drum). This album is one the best examples of classical Persian music featuring lovely, ancient, melodies, fiery improvisation, thoughtful interaction, classic form, and great singing. The players may not be the most famous, but the ensemble works together brilliantly - which is not always the case with many artists.

I've enjoyed this album for many years and suggest you do too!
