In music, the BACH motif is the sequence of notes B flat, A, C, B natural. Bach's use of this cruciform melody in reference to himself extended to its inversion, retrograde, retrograde-inversion, and all transpositions thereof. J. S. Bach himself used it as a fugue subject in the final part of Die Kunst der Fuge (BWV 1080), a work he did not complete before he died in 1750. Works which prominently feature the BACH motif include, in chronological order: 1937-38 - Anton Webern: String Quartet (the tone row is based on the BACH motif) 1976 - Alfred Schnittke: Piano Quintet 1985 - Alfred Schnittke: Concerto Grosso No. 3

Concerto for Solo Actress: The Legend Of Yush's Poet
Concerto for Solo Actress: The Legend Of Yush's Poet
Ecrit le 2018-03-04 par Saboohi Ehsan
The structure of this "concerto" is a combination of contemporary Naghali
(recounting stories), spoken word, and contemporary performance art. The
actress here creates musical events with voice, body, and movement; a bit like
a piano concerto that does not have an orchestra. For me, the Mise-en-scène
functions like the orchestration of a piece.

Naqq&#257;li (or Naghali) is the oldest form of dramatic performance in Iran.
Historically, it has adapted itself to socio-political circumstances. Before the
Sassanid (651 AD), Naqq&#257;ls were poets and musicians simultaneously: they
recited stories while playing instruments. B&#257;rbad was the most renowned
Naqq&#257;l of the Sassanid. During Ghaznavids (10th-12th AD), the Court banned
musical Naqq&#257;li, but the tradition survived in remote areas.

The performer – the Naqq&#257;l – recounts stories in verse or prose accompanied
by gestures and movements, and sometimes instrumental music and painted
scrolls. Naqq&#257;ls function both as entertainers and as bearers of Persian
literature and culture, and need to be acquainted with local cultural
expressions, languages and dialects, and traditional music.

The Concerto for Solo Actress is a faithful narration based on the poem
“Afsaneh” (The Legend) by Nima Yushij. I left Tehran for two years in order to
write “The Legend of Yush’s Poet”. For this purpose, what place could be better
than the homeland of Nima, the father of modern Iranian poetry and whose
poem “The Legend” poem charmed me?

I took up residence in the village of Khesht Sar, in the Central District of
Mahmudabad County, Mazan- daran Province, Iran, and in close proximity to
the birthplace of Nima – Yush. Whenever I was going to the city, I saw a large
board at the entrance of the city that had been written on it: “Welcome to
Nima Yushij’s Birthplace”. Indeed, Yush and Mazandaran are Nima, and Nima is
the pristine nature of the North of Iran. My new home was near the Caspian
Sea, which Nima describes it like this: “Your lips were smiling in that wave”.
The only music that filled my mind in those two years were the sounds of
nature and silence. In this silence, I had the opportunity to think about one
thing every day and every hour! Who is the legend? What shape is she? How is
her singing? How bitter is her bitterness? And how long is her way?

The performance of this work certainly has the result of cooperating with a
sympathetic and committed group that I should be very grateful to all of them.
Those who were with me at eleven nights’ live perfor- mance of this work and
then at all stages of recording, producing, and preparing the audio and video

As far as I know, The Legend of Yush’s Poet is the first concerto that written
for an actress. However, I am responsible for all the errors ahead. But at the
same time, I present the premiere of this work to all members of the group
and Ghazal Naeemi, who practiced hardly and tirelessly for almost seven
months. I am grateful to my sophisticated and kind-hearted friend, Ramin
Dargahi, who translated all the texts into English. I am grateful to my dear
wife, Lena Koocheri, who has strongly supported me all this time. Also, I thank
Mohammad Mousavi and Bruce Hamilton, who helped me to produce this

My greatest hope and desire during the making of this project and upon the
release of its audio and video albums is that Nima Yushij, a well-known poet of
Iran, is watching our work and smiling on what we have done – like a wave
that smiles on the sea and caresses us slowly! - Ehsan Saboohi Tehran 2017

about project:
The Album 'Haikus' is a joint product of Ehsan Saboohi (Iranian Contemporary Composer) and Gerda Geertens (Dutch Contemporary Composer and philosopher). The idea was a proposal from Foekjen Verhoef (Piano instructor). The piano department of the SKVR cultural centre in Rotterdam organised three concerts and recording. Piano students were practising the pieces and familiarising themselves with the contemporary Iranian and world music. In the meantime, Gerda made electronic versions of the the original compositions of Ehsan. Secondly, she created seventeen different projections, using photografic material of Jenny Westenbrink. And at the heart of each of these projections she animated seventeen Haiku, inspired by the titles given by Ehsan. Three poets: Peter Swanborn, Astrid Terbrack, and Gerda Geertens wrote these Haiku.
The seventeen Haiku pieces featuring the album 'Haikus', were performed on 12, 19 and 26 June 2015 at one of the locations of the SKVR cultural centre, along with various other compositions for Harp and Saxophone Quartet, from Ehsan or Gerda.)
The album 'Haikus' was recorded by SOFIESOUND on June 26, 2015, at the auditorium of the SKVR. Because of their great appreciation for this initiative in Rotterdam, Mahoor Institute of Culture and Art has decided to publish this music for all friends of contemporary classical and electronic music.
