In Collaboration with Tehran Records,

The debut CD of Iranian composer Idin Samimi Mofakham (b. 1982, Tehran) , this album contains live recordings of three concerti. The composer’s style exhibits his passion for authenticity, his drive from melodic formations of Persian music, and his soul searching in Eastern European contemporary music.

The three presented works are concerto for solo horn “Rajaz”, a piano concerto “Holography”, and a concerto for chamber ensemble “Ludus Consonous”. These are live recordings of different settings and ensembles, and have taken minimum amount of sound processing. Together they form a triptych pallet, combining a radiant world of sounds and sonority.
