Farhat's Persian Gulf Symphony released in Iran

TEHRAN, Aug. 15 (Mehr News Agency) -- The Sorush Institute finally released the CD of the Persian Gulf Symphony composed by Shahin Farhat on Monday, the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) reported here on Tuesday.

The composer previously warned that if the institute continued delaying the release of the Persian Gulf Symphony, he would release it without lyrics through another company.

Although the Sorush Institute owns the rights to release the symphony on CD, Farhat was determined to release his symphony at any cost.

The name and identity of the Persian Gulf inspired him to compose the symphony.

"I would like everyone that listens to the symphony to hear the sound of the waves and to feel the coastal breeze coming in from the gulf," he once said.

Farhat has tried to incorporate the musical style of southern Iran into the piece, which has four parts. The first two parts are performed by the orchestra, the third part is a recitation, and the fourth is a choral piece.
