Purchase This Album:
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.
