Reza Vali’s Persian Suite: Folks Sngs Set No. 12E for flute and piano was performed by flutist Julieta Blanco with pianist Vahan Sargsyan at Carnegie Mellon on April 26. The three movement suite combines Persian melodies with a western harmonic pallette which draws from both Romantic and Impressionist sensibilities. Ms. Blanco’s compelling performance can be heard on YouTube. For info on this piece, please contact Keiser Classical.
