From the Ancient Valley - Family Oriented Program with Select Repertoire

Intersection presents a family program inspired by Kurdish and Persian culture.

Join Intersection as they explore the vibrant music composed and inspired by Kurdish and Persian culture. From the Ancient Valley will feature two visiting musicians – Persian composer and instrumentalist Shahab Paranj playing the Tombak, a Persian drum, and Sohrab Pournazeri, an Iranian-Kurdish composer and instrumentalist that plays the Kamancheh, an Iranian bowed string instrument – in the Nashville premiere of a work by Intersection Artistic Advisor Richard Danielpour and other virtuoso repertoire.  Danielpour’s “Elegy for the Innocent” is inspired by the children that died in the Iran-Iraq War.  The program will feature other works inspired by Kurdish and Persian culture including pieces by Persian composer Behzad Ranjbaran, Iranian composer Reza Vali and Henry Cowell’s “Persian Set”.
