Hosseini's work which combines Persian regional music
and the academic avant-garde is to be presented by the St. Petersburg Composers
Union's Association of Contemporary Music. The composition, entitled Taleshi
Hava, which is for bassoon and violin and was written by Mehdi Hosseini in
2010, uses music of the north-western Iranian Talishi people. The program
also includes works by composers of the St. Petersburg School of Composition,
such as Sergei Oskolkov and Georgiy Firtich.
Separately, the "Kompozitor - Saint-Petersburg"
Publishing House has completed the first printing of Hosseini's String Quartet
No. 2 "Bakhtiari." This work interweaves folk melodies of the Bakhtiari tribes,
each also acts as a semantic reference that speaks of the multi-millennial
history of one of Persia's most ancient peoples. In 2007, while at a festival of
the Summer Academy in Austria, M.
Hosseini has transcribed all of the ancient themes
listed above for use in a modern musical composition.
