The Excerpts of the Radīf

The Excerpts of the Radīf

In each concert, Ghasimi brings two of the twelve tonal and modal systems of the Radīfs * to the performance.

These performances are sometimes supplemented by lectures that serve to clarify the basic concepts of Persian music and to depict its historical development and its genesis.

Excerpts of the Radīf is a continuous series and a bridge of encounter with a mystical high culture in narrative form.

This series started in November 2017.


* The Radīf (English order, ranking ) is the melody repertoire of classical Persian music and a collection of hundreds of melodic figures, so-called Guschehs. These tunes are organised within twelve sound systems, called Dastgāh and Awaz.
