On January 12, 2018 Persian Echoes featuring music by Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour will be released on the Naxos Label. Crash Ensemble perform his Harp Concerto, alongside an all-star line up including Gabriella Dall'Olio (harp), English Chamber Orchestra and conductor Darragh Morgan.
Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour is a leading composer from Iran whose music reaches across time and continents, being at once universal, richly exotic, and filled with the composer’s own exhilarating joy in creativity. The first ever Iranian harp concerto, Persian Echoes, weaves together Western classical heritage with sounds associated with Persian traditional music, including evocative modes and the lively rhythms of the region’s folk music. Improvisation is used compellingly in the rhapsodic Lucid Dreams, the light and darkness of Yearning in C and the vast landscape of Alas.
