Alexander Rahbari's My Mother Persia is a cycle of symphonic poems suffused with the rich melodies, rhythms and improvisations of Persian traditional music in which he is profoundly versed both as composer and conductor. originally written as a violin concerto, Symphonic Poem No. 9 'Nohe Khan'-the name relates to a singer at religious ceremonies-was recast for baritone saxophone in 2018. Symphonic Poem No. 10 'Morshed' vividly explores ritualised song in the context of 'ancient sport'. Volume 1 is on 8574064 and Volume 2 on 8574065.
