Description



About the Book



Examines the music of Iran in its historical and social contexts from the Timurid period up until the end of the Qajar period (15th to early 20th centuries)



Book Synopsis



Music Making in Iran' looks at the change and evolution of music in Iran from both social and theoretical perspectives. Amir Hosein Pourjavady scrutinises the emergence and development of modal entities, rules for modulation, the formation of court repertoires, the progress of rhythmic structures, vocal and instrumental genres and forms of composition. Through this lens, Hosein investigates how Iranian music has been impacted by Western influence, socio-political developments and contact with other musical cultures.



Review Quotes




This book is a remarkable offering which bridges the divides between historical texts and modern practice, and between west, central and south Asian musical worlds with unflaggingly erudite and impressive scholarship.--Martin Stokes, King's College London
