April in Europe with Reza Vali/ Milestones

RVpicNEYHeading east from Württemberg, Germany where his Ney Concerto, Toward That Endless Plain, will receive its German Premiere on 4/25/13, Reza Vali will arrive in Linz, Austria to attend a performance of his work Calligraphies 1-3 for String Quartet by the Hugo Wolf Quartet the next day. For Vali this will be a return to familiar territory, since the composer spent his graduate study years at the Academy of Music in Vienna. These concerts come during a year of milestones for Vali and his music, as he celebrates his 60th birthday year, marks the tenth anniversary of one of his signature works: the Ney Concerto, and most recently—attended the opening of the new Center For Iranian Music at Carnegie Mellon University, a major project that his vision and guidance played key roles in realizing.
