Masters of Persian Music

Alice Tully Hall @ Lincoln Center
New York New York

Three of the most important figures in classical Persian music return to the US following three sold-out tours: Iran’s great vocalist Mohammad Reza Shajarian; tar (lute) maestro Hossein Alizadeh; and Kayhan Kalhor, a virtuoso of the kamancheh (spike fiddle). They will be joined by Shajarian’s son, Homayoun Shajarian, on tombak (drum) and vocals. Their program draws on the rich heritage of Persian classical music and ancient Sufi and contemporary poetry.
