    "Theoretical basis of Iranian Traditional music"

    Boston Friday - April 23, 2004     06:30 PM

    A Lecture and Demonstration by Master Ali Zarrin

    About the Program:
    Iranian music has a rich and ancient heritage which has been handed down
    from masters to students for generations. Its nuances
    and intricacies are as delicate as a Persian miniature; its spirit is that
    of the great mystics. This lecture will be a discussion to gain a better
    understanding of the history, structure, intervals, performance and musical
    instruments. It is mainly based on older documents/research done on this
    music rather than western methodologies. Ali Zarrin is the direct
    descendant of master musicians Majid Kiani, Parviz Meshkatian and Asghar
    Bahari. The Persian Santour is an instrument from which the hammer dulcimer
    and Piano are derived. The brilliant sound of Santour comes from light
    wooden hammers striking the many strings. Variants of Santour are found
    through out the world, including North America (Hammer Dulcimer), China
    (Yang qin), Hungary (Cymbalon) among others. This is a unique experience
    and introduction to a deeply rooted musical tradition in the Middle East,
    particularly Iran.
