Nights of Kamancheh

Roudaki Hall in Tehran is to host the second round of ‘A Few Nights,’ a music program featuring traditional, classical and folk players performing in various schools of the art.
The first round was staged July 15-18. It was a tar concert with 12 tar players. The second will be ‘A Few Nights of Kamancheh’ slated for August 12-14, Khabaronline reported.
On Saturday, August 12 at 9 pm, the program starts featuring composer and player of kamancheh (a spike fiddle) and kamancheh alto Shervin Mohajer, kamancheh player Elmira Mardaneh and player and instructor Reza Parvizzadeh.
Violinist and kamancheh player Hadi Montazeri will appear on the second concert, August 13. He has received the First Degree Art Certificate from the evaluation council of Culture Ministry. He will be accompanied by composer, player and instructor Houman Roumi. The other artist of the night is composer and player Hesam Inanlou who has performed memorable improvisations.
The third night, August 14, is planned for a series of performances by kamancheh player and violinist Farshad Saremi and kamancheh player Saba Alizadeh, daughter of the globally acclaimed tar and setar virtuoso and composer Hossein Alizadeh, 65. Samer Habibi, player and maker of kamancheh will appear on the same night. He has done extensive research in the history of kamancheh.
‘A Few Nights’ is organized under the auspices of ‘Naghmeh-Hesar’ institute of culture and art, based in Tehran, in collaboration with the Music Department of Culture Ministry and Roudaki Foundation.
Manager of Naghmeh-Hesar, Afshin Masoumi supervises the program. “Fortunately, the first round of ‘A Few Nights’ was successful… when most producers are preoccupied with audience numbers and record setting, there are still people who crave for genuine musical works,” Masoumi said.
