Iranian violinist Farjad to perform at Bodrum Castle
Iranian violin virtuoso Farid Farjad will give a concert at Bodrum Castle in the southern province of Muğla tonight. The concert starts at 10 p.m. and tickets can be found at Biletix booths.
Noted for his performances of Iranian folk music fuelled by the melancholy of being unable to enter his native land, Farjad exudes energy and his charming personality manifests little of the melancholy which he evokes through his music. He obtained a master’s degree in classical music at the Tehran Music Conservatory in 1966 and then went on to play with the Tehran Symphony Orchestra for several years before fleeing Iran for the United States a year before the Iranian Revolution.
