Javid Afsari Rad – Musician, Composer and Musical Director
Originally from Esfahan, Iran, resident in Norway is a first-rate performer on the persian instrument of Santur. He creates music that takes you to hidden depths yet at the same time compels you moutwards to the very edge. It has connotations of both the Sufi tradition and western classical music in its alteration between the tranquil and meditative and the seductive and ecstatic.
Javid Afsari Rad (1965) has participated in, as well as directed, many international musical collaboration projects and he has made a career both as composer and Santur player. As a musician and composer Javid is highly inspired by the work of Rumi: A legendary Sufi mystic and poet of the thirteenth century Persia. The compositions of Javid honours and conveys the great vital energy that seeps out of Rumi´s enchanting poetry.
In 2007 he received the KORK award for his commissioned work with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra(KORK). The price is granted innovative and outstanding contributors to orchestra music.
The jury justified their choice by making the following statement: “The collaboration with composer and musician Javid Afsari Rad was one of the strongest experiences of the year for KORK…with dancing rhythms and quarter tones, the orchestra felt transported to Iran, and found itself among Persian ornaments and Sufi poetical praises of love”.
His latest project: Norwegian World Orchestra is a summery of his former musical collaborations with some of the most distinguished world musicians of Norway and a brilliant Norwegian String quartet.
This project is commissioned by Arts Council of Norway and presented for the first time by ICOLD in Stavanger Concert Hall.
