Publisher's Summary

The poetry of great poets such as Rumi and Hafis, masterfully recited in the Persian original by Reza Ghotbi in the German translation by the actress Ulrike Kriener with a warm timbre. Interweaves with music to create an atmospheric overall experience.

Mulo Francel, saxophonist of the celebrated world music band Quadro Nuevo, improvises on the icons of European music: Handel, Bach, Schubert, Caccini, Satie.

Together with the sensitive pianist Nicole Heartseeker, the melodies will be atmospherically juxtaposed with Persian poetry.

This creates a sensual access to the flowery-mystical language of Persian poetry and its powerful images.

Here, styles are mixed, millennia are overcome, cultures are united, old masters are rejuvenated and new sound images are conjured up - beyond conventional patterns and classical pigeonholing, floating in space and time.

The selected texts are by the early Iranian poets Hafis (1317-1390) and Rumi (1207-1273), but also by artists of our time such as Sohrab Sepehri (1928-1980), Ahmad Shamlou "Bamdad" (1925-2000) and Huschang Ebtehadsch "Sayeh" (b. 1928), who now lives in Cologne.
