Album Notes
Mashayekhi’s Music for Violin
The Violin repertoire of Alireza Mashayekhi consists of two Violin Concertos, Sonatas for Violin and Piano, four Sonatas for Violin solo, and Variant and Memories for Violin. He also has compositions for two violins. His first and second Sonatas reflect his idea of “expanded concentration”, where he tries to use extensive material in the shortest possible playing time. The third Sonata reflects his idea of “relative” music, where different dimensions and elements of music become the major source of formal development. The fourth Sonata presents his approach toward multiculturalism. In this album we also have Variant, a technically difficult composition inspired by Persian music, and Memories No. 3 and 4 for Violin solo, which are short “nostalgic” pieces.

Alireza Mashayekhi
Alireza Mashayekhi is one of the pioneers of multiculturalism in music. He was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1940. Mashayekhi’s works have been performed in Iran and abroad for more than 45 years. Hanns Jelinek and Karl Schiske were his composition teachers in Vienna. His many years of association with Hanns Jelinek encouraged him to explore a wide spectrum of 20th century music. This and his fondness for Iranian culture were the cornerstones of his artistic development. After completing his studies at the Akademie für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna, he went to Utrecht, the Netherlands, to pursue his study of electronic and computer music, which included attending lectures by Gottfried Michael König.
Mashayekhi’s compositions have tended towards three major directions: pieces that are directly inspired by Iranian music (e.g. Symphony No. 5), atonal compositions (e.g. Symphony No. 4) and multicultural compositions (e.g. Symphony No. 9 “My World”).
Mashayekhi is professor of composition at Tehran University and permanent conductor of Iranian Orchestra for New Music.

Paniz Faryousefi began her musical education with her father, the late professor Shahryar Faryousefi, and her mother Fahime Esmaeili.
She graduated in Music at the Tehran Conservatory in the class of Professor Siavash Zahireddini, and continued her studies in Armenia, where she obtained a master degree at Comitas Conservatory.
She studied violin under Reuben Gosemyan and Suren Haghnazaryan.
Faryousefi participated in many chamber music performances with well-known musicians from Iran and Armenian, and she played the “Violin Concerto” of Loris Cheknavorian under his own conducting with Armenian String Orchestra. She has also conducted the Tehran Conservatory String Orchestra.
Presently she is devoting herself to recording Violin music of Alireza Mashayekhi. Besides of his “Concerto for Violin and Orchestra”, she has recorded four of his “Solo Sonatas for Violin”, and the “Concerto for Violin and Percussion” which is dedicated to her.
Faryousefi has taught Violin at the Tehran University and at the Art University. Presently she is teaching at Comprehensive Scientific and Application University in Tehran.
She has developed a brilliant style of playing the Violin where essential factors are intensive articulation and carful shaping of individual atmospheres.
