In this concert the HaftCraft ensemble brings the soul of Iranian music and poetry to BOZAR. The ensemble's musicians commissioned Iranian composers to write musical pieces that would unite the traditions of Persian and Western Classical music. In the subtle, heartrending songs we hear the masterfulness of the Iranian composers, who turn sensitive themes into abstract art forms as a way of evading the Iranian censors. The mastery of the Belgian musicians is heard in the clear voice of Albanian mezzo-soprano Ana Naqe, who sings the songs in Farsi to mark the occasion.
