Traditional Persian music and its potential for contemporary Western music are the focus of this special programme. Before the Iranian virtuosos Majeed Qadiani and Niloufar Mohseni play the traditional instruments Tār, Setār and Tonbak Wolfgang von Schweinitz transfers the special moods of Persian music into his own musical language in “My Persia”.
