Tehran Symphony Orchestra won accolade in Shanghai


Tehran Symphony Orchestra (TSO) performed at Shanghai Spring International Music Festival which was highly admired by the audience on Wednesday. The TSO performed a two-part program under two conductors, Farhad Fakhreddini and Nasir Heydarian. The first part which included a repertory of Persian music pieces was conducted by Farhad Fakhreddini. ‘Avecina,’ ‘Shourafarin,’ ‘Tarabangiz,’ ‘Chaharmezrab e Chahrgah for violin and orchestra,’ ‘Reng e Bayat e Shiraz,’ ‘Paykouban,’ and ‘On Youth for violin and orchestra,’ were the major pieces of the first part with Arsalan Kamkar, and Habib Jadiri playing the solo violin.






The second part, under the baton of Nasir Heydarian, was dedicated to classic music and the four movements of Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, was performed. Founded in 1933, the Tehran Symphony Orchestra was originally founded as the Municipality Symphony Orchestra by Gholamhossein Minbashian, but it was re-modernized by Parviz Mahmoud in 1946 and since then has been under the baton of famous conductors such as Rubik (Ruben) Gregorian, Morteza Hannaneh, Haymo Taeuber, Heshmat Sanjari, Farhad Meshkat and a host of other renowned Iranian maestros.
