In 2021, we have started to hold a series of four-session courses, on Persian Dastgah music, widely known as Persian Radif music.
|2021 Courses||Topics / Descriptions|
|March||Templates of Kereshmeh and Chahar-Pareh, and their various versions in different Dastgah-s. Then we will try to bring other modes unto the templates and make our own versions of Kereshmeh and Chahar-Pareh.|
|April||Templates of 'Khosravani' and 'Hazin', and how they take shape in different Dastgah-s, and we'll try to extend that to the modes that do not appear in the versions of Radif widely published.|
|May||Templates of 'Baste-negar' and 'Masnavi', and their characteristics. We will see how they take shape in different Dastgah-s, and their different roles in a typical performance of Persian Dastgah music.|
|June||In June, with the fourth round of the course, we will get to know about timing-phrasing templates of 'Naghmeh' and 'Zanguleh', and what their characteristics are built upon. We will take a look at the differences they have, when appearing in different Dastgah-s, and the way they are used in performing Persian Dastgah music.|
