Camargo Guarnieri (1907), is the most famous Brazilian composer after Villa- lobos. Guarnieri like Mashayekhi has very short pieces named moments. They reflect the facets Brazilian soul.
Amy Beach (1867), first successful American female. She was one of the first American composers to succeed without the benefit of European training. She composed 4 sketches which I present Autumn and Dreaming. Often compared to that of Brahms or Rachmaninov.
Farzia Fallah (1980), a successful female composer who started compositions with Alireza Mashayekhi. She completed her studies in Germany, an intimate avant-guard composer. A fragment of a whole was composed in 2020 for the year of Beethoven. It is specially composed for the sonata op. 110, an introductory piece which becomes part of the sonata. This Beethoven sonata is one of the last sonatas that he composed. A sonata form but not in a traditional Mozartian style, but more in a complex way. You can’t say clearly how many movements the piece has. The last movement starts with Ariosa but followed by a Fugue, a traditional form from 17th century, the new style, romanticism is overlapped by the fugue of the past. A poetic piece which yet is so real.
Each piece in this program is resembling a moment in life. Moments since our birth to our present day, moments we go through, the pain, the happiness, the confusion and the poetry that life accompanies us.
