RHM & VICO Music of the World: Concert Series

Persian Origins: Persian Traditional Duo

Featuring Saina Khaledi on santoor and Ali Razmi on the tar and setar.

April 13, 2023 @ 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

Roedde House Museum in collaboration with the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO) is pleased to present our new musical series: “Music of the World”.

Join us in the parlour of Roedde House Museum as we take chamber music back to its originally intended intimate setting. We hope that through this concert series you will be introduced to a diversity of musical instruments and styles reflective of the diversity of the Canadian experience as well as a new appreciation of different types of classical music!

Masks are encouraged.

Refreshments will be provided. 

Program Description: Delicate melodies with a profusion of  ornamentation give the listener a window into an ancient world where these instruments would be played in private, away from the public eye. Persian Origins audibly demonstrate Persian traditional instruments are the forefathers  of the piano (santor) and guitar (tar) and the program presented  shows many facets of musical character similar to western music from the baroque era:  in range, in dynamics and in deeply personal thoughts being played out in transparent intimate detail.

Host: VICO Composer in Residence.  Dr. Farshid Samandari
