Misc. Comments

“… And His Cuff Was Damped with Tears "for Persian String Quartet (in one movement), is composed in the Summer of 2012 once more inspired by Ahmad Shamloo from his poem “Said the Canary”. The original motivation for writing the piece came to me during the first live performance of Chahargan Ensemble in Tehran, where I was an audience to. Apart from the stunning sonic quality of the Persian string quartet in terms of timbre and microtonal abilities, what attracted my attention most was the true potentials of experimentation in the realm of contemporary music, both in its style and in techniques for writing specifically for Persian instruments.

“… And His Cuff was Damped with Tears” is dedicated to Chahargan Ensemble and is premiered by them in Roudaki Hall in October 2012.

In November 2013 the piece was released in the album "Possible Worlds vol.2" (various artists) by Spectropol Records. The piece has also been arranged for Western string quartet. “The hollow, sad look in her eyes, few seconds before they burst into tears, never left my sight throughout the movement” the composer recalls.
