Prominent Iranian composer and conductor Shahdad Rohani will be performing the Persian Gulf Symphony from May 2 to 4 at Tehran's Vahdat Hall.
"I have composed this symphony for orchestra, choir and Persian percussion instruments and I have plans to perform it along with several other pieces on the Persian Gulf composed by other musicians," he told the Persian service of ILNA on Saturday.
He added that he received the proposal to compose the Persian Gulf Symphony from the Hormozgan Music Association, "I have tried to reflect the grandeur and magnificence of the Persian Gulf, depicting its unique beauties and the underwater life within it."
It would be more impressive if a short pictorial narration had been made on the symphony to show the variety of the region, Rohani added.
Rohani had earlier told the Persian service of ISNA last year that the foreigners' efforts in distortion of name of the Persian Gulf had provoked him into composing the symphony, which he believes would be 'eternal' in the history of Iranian music.
"Although I live in the U.S., I am always proud of being Iranian. I love every inch of my country and I am ready to do anything to introduce the glory of my homeland," he had stated.
