|Iranian virtuosos to give performances in Austria||
TEHRAN -- The Iranian celebrated tar virtuoso Keyvan Saket and oud virtuoso Majid Nazempur will give joint performances in Austria in March.
Tonbak player Ali-Akbar Khadem will also accompany them during the performances, which will be held in Vienna, Graz, and Eisenberg from March 3 to 8, Nazemipur told the Persian service of FNA on Wednesday.
“In part of the concerts, we will perform some pieces I have recently composed,” Nazemipur said.
A brief repertoire of world music pieces are slated to be performed during the concerts, he added.
Nazempur has previously performed in many concerts in Iran and abroad.
He gave performances at the 1st Gambus Conference and Festival in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in July 2012.
Nazemipur is also a skilled instrument maker.
He remade several Iranian musical instruments, which had been forgotten over time, and donated the instruments to the Music Museum of Iran.
He also made an effort to recompose musical pieces that were performed on these instruments in Iran about a thousand years ago.
