NeyNava is probably the most famous piece of Persian
music composed in the past twenty years of Iran's musical history.
It is an eternal piece. In your first listening of NeyNava you will
feel it under your skin. It will talk to you and remind of a musical
paradise. It is a true fusion of the western percision and the
eastern mysticism. NeyNava translates as "the
sound of Ney", and is written in Dastgah Nava, which is known for its
mystically contemplative atmosphere. It takes up the concerto form with
a fully western string orchestra as its accompaniment. NeyNava
wonderfully introduces the tone of Ney, which can sound both warm and
crisp to the western listener. This recording has been digitally
restored from the original performance in 1984 by the String Orchestra
of the National Iranian Radio and Television.
Song of Compassion was written as a requiem for the
victims of the
devastating earthquake in the northern region of Iran in 1990. It is
one of the few expressionistic compositions written for indigenous
Persian instruments. The wonderful color and thematic depth of this
work makes it emotionally engaging and effective in its expression of
the tragedy and compassion for the event. Song of Compassion
is an outcry of bold musical content; its melodies will make you feel the
agony of the earthquake and its rhythms will remind you of the everlasting
powerful force of life.
