Works of Iranian composer to echo in St. Petersburg

Pieces created by the Iranian composer and ethnomusicologist Mehdi Hosseini will be played during two separate performances in St. Petersburg in this coming April and May.

According to Tehran Times, his composition, based on the music of the northwestern Iranian Taleshi tribesmen, will be performed at the Chamber hall of the Saint-Petersburg State Conservatory, Russia on April 8.

Entitled “Taleshi Hava”, the composition will be performed with a solo violin and bassoon in the second part of the performance in memory of the Italian composer Luigi Nono.

The Saint-Petersburg State Philharmonic Hall will host the World premiere of the Concerto for String Quartet and Chamber Orchestra by Mehdi Hosseini on May 23.
