Notes & Reviews:

The music of Iranian-born, American-based composer Behzad Ranjbaran has been praised as "noble and brilliantly conceived" (American Music Guide). 'Awakening' commemorates the triumph of peace over war. 'Moto Perpetuo' combines moments of joy, humor and lyricism, ending with fearless energy. 'Elegy for Strings' is reflective of life's cycle. 'Elegy for Cello and Strings' is based on the second movement of his 'Cello Concerto'. The 'Six Caprices' explore a variety of violin techniques and textures, while the 'String Quartet' reflects on the nature of life, dreams and the subconscious, and rituals and ceremonies.
