Notes

Much of this CD is a result of Hamza's collaboration with stage director and visionary Peter Sellars on his multi-media work The Persians. Waterwheel of Darius is a reinvention of Escalay used as the music of King Darius in the play It is a wonderful opportunity to see how Hamza's vision of his seminal work has evolved in his own playing. Other pieces here offer the same chance: new imaginings of Shortunga and Nabra are likewise explored. Like the gold-tinged cover, this recording gives off warmth and comfort.
