Ali Balighi - A little Piece For Violin


This piece is based on traditional Persian music. Use of Microtonal interval, approaching free meters and use of oriental thought. One of the most important elements used in this piece was the approach to Kamanche's sound. Kamanche is a traditional Persian instrument and very similar to violin. The strings are played with a variable-tension bow. To make the sound of Kamancheh, I've written very precisely play using of bow.
