ABOLHASAN EGBAL AZAR / SINGING AT 100s


エグバル・アザールのLP時代に入ってからの円熟期・録音集ということになるでしょう。7分ぐらいの曲から、長尺22分の曲まで、全74分、おそらく50年前後の録音集だと思われます。1866年生まれのエグバルですから、既に相当な高齢となっていたハズですが、信じられないような声の張り、タハリールも存分に聞かせてくれます。タールの名手ゴラム・ホセイン・ビグジェーハーニ(1987年没)が伴奏しているところも、イラン音楽ファンには嬉しいところ!

He was accompanied by Darvish Khan (tar), Baqer Khan Rameshgar (kamancheh), Seyed Hoseyn Taherzadeh (vocals) and Abdolah Davami (tasnif and zarb). …
