Persian Suite

There are three movements – the introduction (prelude), a fugue, and a short coda. The orchestration is: 2 oboes, clarinet, baboon, 3 violins, viola, 2 cellos, double bass. Most of the themes are from Balkan and Iranian sources – with a few musical jokes (B-A-C-H and quotes of some themes from my Symphony in Five Small Movements).


Score:  Persian Prelude
