ALIZADEH & GASPARYAN – “Endless Vision”
World Village, 2006

Traditional Persian and Armenian music meet in this stunning live performance (in Tehran, 2003). Hossein Alizadeh, who has a long and distinguished resume in classical and modern work, plays a lute called a shurangiz. Djivan Gasparyan is a master of the duduk flute and does a lot of movie soundtrack work in addition to the more standard fare. The two are supported by the seven-piece Hamayavan Ensemble (vocals, drums, flutes, oud). Beautiful, if often sad.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 4

1. 22:13 – relaxed, meditative and haunting: starts with atmospheric strumming, flute comes in at 4 minutes, followed by drums and slow, moaning, overlapped vocals. It’s long, but worth the investment. Just gorgeous!
2. 03:07 – mournful improvised flute solo over a quiet drone.
3. 07:40 – wow. lovely vocals and gently marching rhythm, intoxicating.
4. 08:00 – surging mid/uptempo instrumental, a galloping caravan on the Silk Road.
5. 05:56 – low flutes and a rough-edged solo vocal; lots of space, lonely sound
6. 06:02 – solo improvisation on shurangiz: fluttery at some times, forceful at others
7. 06:36 – big strum & drum theme, perky vocal ensemble; slashing & dramatic
