Raz-o-Niaz is performed by the acclaimed Sheyda and Aref Ensemble, featuring the beautiful voice of Alireza Eftekhari. In this recording, Alizadeh shows his compositional skills in writing classical Persian music for a large ensemble, incorporating western orchestration techniques and imaginative, compelling orchestral ideas. Raz-o-Niaz is thoroughly classical Persian music in inspiration, with novel and compelling approaches to form and orchestration. Raz-O-Niaz will take you on a powerful journey colored by a canvas of ancient melodies. The setar duets in Raz-o-Niaz evoke some of the most inspirational and mystic imagery found in Persian music today.
