Hossein Alizadeh & Hamavayan Ensemble

An anthology of Persian love poetry

Alizadeh, shah of the tar, navigates between tenderness and passion in this anthology of Persian love poetry.

With Hossein Alizadeh, composer, tar player, and architect of contemporary Iranian classical music, De Bijloke brings a true master to its stage at the suggestion of De Centrale. For his performance at the Nachtlicht Festival, Alizadeh wraps the love poetry of historical and contemporary Persian poets in stunningly beautiful melodies: a gift to his musicians and his audience. The motto of this concert comes from the immortal wordsmith Rumi: "Where love enters, the impossible becomes possible."
