Title: Iranian Music
Post by: Malito on September 10, 2012, 10:31:14 pm
Are there any of Shahin Farhat's 12 symphonies available other than the #11 which was just posted?  I would surely love to hear more of his music.  Malito

Malito, Farhat actually composed 16 symphonies (plus a Sinfonietta for string orchestra) ;D! According to Michael Herman's Asian Symphonies Discography, quite a few of his symphonies have been recorded on some very rare CDs that you can probably only get in Iran.
