Excellent recordings. Excellent recordings of a rare old repertoire. His music has something like an extra dimension. It is like blazing flames. Unfortunately he is today forgotten. Here the second recording by the great master of Avaz see the preceding post. Many thanks to KF for the recording and creating the covers.
Rambod Sodeyf is one of the three greatest singers in Iran in the last 50 years, the other two being Mohammad Reza Shajarian born and Hatam Asgari Farahani born None of the other Iranian singers masters the vocal art of Avaz in such a complete way as these three.
The other two are only known to some connoisseurs. Hatam Asgari Farahani insisteded up to recently that his privately done recordings should be exclusively for his students. Rambod Sodeyf always refused to be recorded. As far as I know the reason seems to be that he is convinced, as also Hatam Asgari Farahani, that Ney Taksimi - Nezih Uzel - Mevlana - Instrumental Mevlevi Music exquisit art of Iranian Avaz classical non-metric vocal improvisation is an art which has to be recreated in each performance newly and therefore should not be fixed, neither by being written down nor by recordings.
This is the recording we present here. Luckily there is one more recording, Attempt To Escape - Out Now - Be A Trap by WDR, the Western German broadcasting, which Ney Taksimi - Nezih Uzel - Mevlana - Instrumental Mevlevi Music in a concert in Cologne. This one we will post next. It is a pity that there are no other recordings. At least now in his old age he should consent to be recorded, as otherwise his music will get lost once he passes away.
But maybe there are some good Mehfil recordings or a Radif which might emerge one day. Rambod Sodeyf has learned from some of the greatest singers of the 20th century: the outstanding Soleyman Amir Qasemi Ghasemialso known as Salim Khan, the towering Eqbal Azar and the great Radif teacher Abdollah Davami He has his own music school in Ardebil in Iranian Azerbaijan. Here another great master of the Vishnupur Gharana, this time a master of the Esraj.
Many thanks to him. Newer Posts Older Posts Home. Subscribe to: Posts Atom.
