About the Artist

Reza Parvizade is a kamancheh player from Lorestan, Iran. He began his music training playing the kamancheh in the Lori tradition, and later studied the Persian classical dastgah system.

He has studied and collaborated with master musicians including Mohammad Reza Lotfi, Dariush Talâ’i, and Mozafar Shafi’i. Parvizade has released several CDs and given concerts in both Iran and France, specialising in long solo performances accompanied by percussion. He performs what might be considered a “pure” Persian style but also imports Lori melodic modes into this style—an innovative approach to the canonical classical repertoire. From the recordings left by the last masters of the Qajar school, he restored the essence of the old style of playing kamancheh in his 2015 CD “Commemoration of Hosein Khan Esmailzade.”

As a teacher and member of the committee of the Institute of Musicology of the University of Tehran, he is attempting both to preserve the musical legacy of the kamancheh and further develop its technique and repertoire.
