TEHRAN, June 26 (Mehr News Agency) -- Iranian composer Loris Tjeknavorian laments the fact that retiring musicians are not being replaced in Iran.
"Musicians are so rare in Iran that some of them are performing in two national and symphonic orchestras simultaneously," he told the Mehr News Agency on Monday.
Iranian orchestras are in need of new blood so that they do not have to lend each other musicians, he added.
He noted that musicians become more experienced as they age.
"We should make use of musicians as long as they remain healthy. The best conductors in the world are over 60."
