This work of the Iranian composer Mehdi Hosseini combines a number of folk tunes Tipumey (in the maqam Gahgeriyu or Gahgiri), Huri-Huri, Cheshmeh-ye Kuhrang, Chub bazi, Saharnaz, Pishnavazi, Lachakriyali. Each is, in essence, a Maqam and serves as a musical metaphor in the rich cultural tradition of the Bakhtiari people. Each also acts as a semantic reference that speaks of the multi-millennial history of one of Persia's most ancient peoples. In 2007, while at a festival of the Summer Academy in Austria, M. Hosseini transcribed all of the ancient themes listed above for use in a modern musical composition. More about: Compozitor Publishing House. Saint Petersburg.
