Synopsis

The Art of Avaz and Mohammad Reza Shajarian: Foundations and Contexts, by Rob Simms and Amir Koushkani, examines the traditional art of singing classical Persian poetry, as represented by its greatest living exponent. Focusing on Shajarian's early career up to 1979, this in-depth study includes a panoramic view of the social and historical context of the twentieth-century tradition of avaz, along with a detailed presentation of Shajarian's musical toolkit for weaving together poetry and Iranian musical modes.

Rob Simms is a multi-instrumentalist and author of The Repertoire of Iraqi Maqam and co-author (with Amir Koushkani) of The Avaz of Mohammad Reza Shajarian in Iran and Beyond, 1979-2000. He is associate professor of music at York University in Toronto. Amir Koushkani is a performer (solo and in collaboration with other musicians), composer, arranger, and instructor of the traditional Persian stringed instruments tar and setar. He is a Ph.D candidate in ethnomusicology at York University in Toronto.
