TEHRAN – Iran’s National Orchestra will perform two concerts in the Azerbaijani cities of Baku and Ganja next week.

The performances, which are part of a five-day Iranian cultural festival, will be held on June 27 and 29.

A repertoire of pieces from Iranian composers such as Aref Qazvini, Nasrollah Zarrinpanjeh, Ali Tajvidi, Babak Zarrin and Hossein Dehlavi will be performed during the concerts. 

“Airiliq” (“Separation”), a piece by Iranian Azarbaijani composer Ali Salimi, is one of the highlights of the repertoire.
