Australian Composer, Paul Branton has Composed these pieces for Robaba and Classical String Orchestra. Ali Tavakkoli as Robab Soloist, could create an artistic bridge between Eastern and Western Music.
A strong motivation for composing this anthology, was my fascination with the immaculate tone of
the Robab; which itself inherits the rapturous sound of the Taar and the age-old maturity of the Oud.
My intent was to create enough distinction in the form and character of each piece in order to
stimulate the listeners’ experience. Nevertheless, each body of work is an opportunity for growth, a
constant challenge to an artist’s mind – and this album is no exception.
