Neyshâbur is a contemporary interpretation of a selection of pishrow-s attributed to Persian composers in the 18th century Ottoman manuscript of Kevseri whose transcriptions have recently become available. These pishrow-s, which did not exist in the older sources, are here connected to each other by the solos of musicians of Neoclassical Ensemble of Tehran, which benefit particularly from some free and non-stereotyped modulations, in order to structure a whole in the form of a suite. Here, all the aesthetic and methodological infrastructures of performance of the old transcriptions are in common with those of the album ‘Ajamlar, nevertheless, Neyshâbur presents some evolutions in the way that it uses the orchestral potentials; the fact that makes its musical expression more personal and more contemporary.
