“Masters of Persian Music” concert

A quartet made up of eminent figures in Persian music will be offering a unique performance at the Teatro Fígaro in Madrid, on Tuesday, May 9.

April 20, 2017
Hosein Behroozinia, the most notable oud player from Iran; Javid Rad, director of the Rumi Ensemble; the excellent percussionist Behnam Samani, and an ingenious ney player, and Davud Varzideh, are the four musicians making up this quartet.
Given the name “The Art of Improvisation,” the concert will be marked by the spontaneous creativity of these prestigious musicians. This performance is the first in the group’s European tour, which will continue with recitals in other cities on the old continent. The performance is based on traditional music from Iran, with more than two thousand years of history. In recent years, it has been very well-received in different parts of the world.

The Iranian oud is known as the barbat, and will be played along the santur (with more than 80 strings), ney (cane flute), daf and tombak, the authentic instruments of traditional Iranian music. They will be played by the prestigious hands of the master musician, Darío El Grande.

Tickets for this concert are now on sale at both and at the Teatro Fígaro and Persépolis Cultural Center (Tickets sold in advance and online: 13 euros; at the box office: 16 euros).
