Classical Iranian Music Concert Past

Room: Djam Lecture Theatre (DLT)

Saeid Kordmafi: Santour
Fariborz Kiani: Tombak & Dayereh

Classical Iranian Music, as one of the most influential sonic cultures in the “maqām” realm, nowadays projects a broad range of aesthetic approaches to the same musical heritage resulting in various music styles in present day Iran. The cited diversity, perhaps resulting from the heated debate of “tradition vs. modernity”, differentiates contemporary classical Iranian music from its counterparts in the given region.

The program comprises two parts both of which, despite their stylistic divergence, can be regarded as classical Iranian music; the start of the program, a short traditional improvisation based on and close to the model repertoire (radīf), demonstrates characteristic features of the qājār style in terms of both form and content. A small number of Iranian musicians currently tend to follow this specific style whereas around a century ago, it was the most current way of performing Iranian music. The second part, adopting a more cross-cultural approach, attempts to take advantage of medieval Iranian musical system (before the qājār era). Referring to the same historical roots as well as musical materials that are or can be shared by Iranian, Arab, Turkish and Central Asian musical cultures, this stylistic approach is going to be one of the mainstreams in contemporary classical Iranian music.

Organised by: Department of Music - SOAS, University of London
