MIDDLE EAST (IRAN). Un Regard Persan - Classiques Perses
Mohammad Shams was born into a family of musicians in Tehran in 1954, and has composed over 600 pieces of traditional, classical and modern music. Claiming that classical music, "has to keep its nature, but also evolve with time," he fuses his Persian artistry with elements of Western music and has heralded classical Persian music at international events such as the London Festival, where he has conducted the London Festival Orchestra. On the album Un Regard Persan, Shams's prodigious creative powers are focused on tones, sounds and contrasts that ultimately produce powerful and rich orchestral material that is full of expression.
