TEHRAN -- Iran’s Sol Music Ensemble will be releasing its next album that contains pieces by French impressionist musicians in the near future.

“We are rehearsing some French pieces composed by Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Florent Schmitt and several other impressionist artists,” the conductor of the band Bahman Mehabadi told the Persian service of the Fars News Agency.
He said that no work has been done in this field and that will make the album, which is their 14th, more interesting.
Their 11th album contains compositions by several musicians including Richard Hall, Béla Bartók, Paul Hindemith, Halsey Stevens, and Paul Beaudoin.
