    Piece for Persian Ney and Orchestra

    Los Angeles Saturday - November 3, 2007     08:00 PM

    Concerto for Persian Ney and Orchestra:

    On November 3-4, 2007, the Persian Ney master Khosrow Soltani and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Jeffrey Kahane, will perform the west coast premiere of Toward that Endless Plain, Concerto for Persian Ney and Orchestra by the Persian composer and Carnegie Mellon University professor Reza Vali.

    Toward that Endless Plain, Concerto for Persian Ney and Orchestra was written for Khosrow Soltani and dedicated to the memory of Mr. Soltani’s wife, Farzaneh Navai who passed away in 2004.

    The title and the content of the work are inspired by a poem by the 20th century Persian mystic poet Sohrab Sepehri:

    I must depart tonight.

    Taking a suitcase

    the size of my loneliness,

    I must go

    where the mythical trees are in sight.

    Toward that endless plain

    that always

    is calling me to itself.

    The concerto consists of a prelude and three movements. The second and the third movements are connected through an interlude. Throughout the concerto, the solo Ney characterizes “the seeker” (Sâlek or Ráhro in Persian), while the orchestra embodies the environment of the seeker (Vâdi in Persian).

    The musical material of the composition is entirely derived from Persian traditional music. The tuning, rhythm, form, as well as polyphonic constructions relate to the Persian modal system, the Dástgâh.
