FOCUS ON " MIDDLE- EASTERN CLASSICAL COMPOSERS"


Despite the fact that we hear much about the Middle-Eastern countries every day on the news, many of us are not aware of the existance of conservatories, concert halls and composers of classical music. Many musicians of these countries are fascinated with western culture and music and employ its influences within their national heritage. Today's program presented a number of unknown Middle-Eastern composers that combined western traditions with their own ethnic experience and heritage.
