Album Notes
Tania Eshaghoff, pianist, composer was born in Tehran, Iran in 1974. She started studying piano at the age of seven with Mahdogh Monesabian(formerly Tehran Conservatory of Music) who introduced her to an improvisatory style of Persian folk melodies. These romantic melodies were the inspiration for Tania's continued musical career and growth as a Persian woman playing music in spite of social barriers.
Since 1996, Tania Eshaghoff has been under the musical wing of Dr.Edward Smaldone, Director of Copland School of Music, Queens College, CUNY. "Her new album 'A Road to Tehran' is a synthisis of Perisn and western styles. Tania has performed numerous concerts on such prestigious stages as the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, The Museum of American Piano, Le Frak Concert Hall, Center of Jewish History and the Makor Center of the 92nd Street Y. Her private audiences include diplomats, ambassadors and recently Her Majesty Farah Pahlavi of Iran.
The most significant influences in both style and substance of Tania's music, stems from the persian tradition of the Santur(dulcimer) with its elaborate rhythmic and melodic figuration, here translated into a distinct pianistic technique.
"Like all traditinal folk music, this repertoire stems from deeply felt emotion, which in this case Tania has translated it into a musical surface that evokes the ancient world of Persian and the modern concert world of artists such as Javad Maroufi, Rohani, Googosh,& Yanni"--Professor Edward Smaldone, Director Copland School of Music.

"Tania's unique gift is to bridge the separate musical landscape of traditional Iran and the modern world. Her right hand sings as she plays this music," Anthony DeRitis, Chairman of Music, NorthEastern Univeristy

"Her music is mesmerizing and her passion contagious" Ahron Friedberg.



to write a review


wow, if Chopin had gone back in time to Persia
An ambitious project -combine some of the best sounds of West and Middle East. Intense success -amazingly skilled musicians, fantastic songs that smoothly mix two sounds. The traditional Iranian ensemble evokes the burning sands and starry nights of ancient Persia, while the piano srongly reminds me of Chopin's Noctures and maybe Rachmaninov's brooding power. The entire CD is mesmerizing -not light background music but an absorbing, captivating symphony of sound. If Chopin had traveled back in time and found his soulmate in Sheherazade, the results might sound something like this CD.


beautiful music
Anthoy DeRitis write: "the separate musical landscape of traditional Iran and the modern world." Another ignorant and orientalist view on Iranian music which totally ignores the way Eastern music and Western have both shaped the 'other'. You are reifying that by putting it in Eshaghoff'd profile.. oh, pleeease take that off!
