ILLUMINATION ENSEMBLE IRANIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC

Description

TAR, SETAR & VOCAL : SHAHAB AZINMEHR
KAMANCHE : MOSTAFA TALEB

The Radif of Iranian music is the traditional repertoire of the
classical music of Iran that forms the essence of Persian musical
culture. More than 250 melodic units, called gushe, are arranged into
cycles, with an underlying modal layer providing the backdrop against
which a variety of melodic motifs are set. Although the main performance
practice of Iranian traditional music unfolds through improvisation
according to the mood of the performer and in response to the audience,
musicians spend years learning to master the radif as the set of musical
tools for their performances and compositions. The radif may be vocal or
instrumental, performed on a variety of instruments with different
performance techniques including the long- necked lutes tār and setār,
as well as the santur hammered zither, kamānche spike fiddle and ney
reed pipe. Passed from master to disciple through oral instruction, the
radif embodies both the aesthetic practice and the philosophy of Persian
musical culture. Learning the radif stretches over at least a decade of
self devotion during which the students memorize the radif’s repertoire
and engage in a process of musical asceticism intended to open the gates
of spirituality. This rich treasury lies at the heart of Iranian music
and reflects the cultural and national identity of the Iranian people.
