Journey

Journey

1 Presence 2 Journey 3 Fervor of Love 4 Complaint 5 RejoicingJourney is the fruit of collaboration between two musicians, Massoud Shaari, a traditional Iranian musician and a virtuoso of Persian Setar and Christophe Rezai, a French Iranian composer of European culture.Journey is introduced under the form of five pieces for Setar evoking four different modalities and therefore four difference ambiences of traditional Persian music. The Indian Tabla, closely linked to the Setar, takes us further to the east towards Indian tradition, which has many common points with Persian music. Furthermore the accompaniment by classical and contemporary orchestral formations takes us to the West towards the European musical tradition of the 21st century. Somehow it is a journey across the world of Indo European cultures.About the ArtistsMassoud Shaari Born in 1961 in Tehran, Iran, he started playing Santur at the age of 13 after which he turned to Setar under the supervision of Dariush Talai.
