Lieder on Poems by Hafez

Collection of Lieder for soprano and piano on poems by Hafez, (Farsi singing with English based on G.H. Wilberforce Clarke’s translation).It started as an ongoing musical project in which 3 have been written so far in different years. This set of 3 songs was published in the UK by the Fand Music Press in 2001.

They are based in modal writing in order to be more in harmony with the spirit of the Hafez poems. The 1st one is of criticizing nature of pedanticizem in the spiritual world, while the 2nd is a love song and the 3rd, of spiritual beauty and elevation.
