Iranian Classical Music :: An Introduction - 0 views

    The following characteristics are shared between Iranian and other Central Asian music:

    * The music is mainly monophonic, with each instrument in an ensemble following one melodic scheme.
    * The music is based upon a modal system; with each mode engendering different melodic types, called gushehs in Farsi. The execution of the melodic types are left up to the musician.
    * The use of microtones divides the scales into more than twelve semi-tones.
    * A priority is given to ornamentation.
    * There are a number of substantial pauses in each piece.

    The following are characteristics which distinguish Persian music from other Central Asian music:

    * Melodies are concentrated on a relatively narrow register.
    * Melodic movement occurs by conjunct steps.
    * Emphasis is on cadence, symmetry, and motivic repetition at different pitches.
    * Rhythmic patterns are kept simple.
    * The tempo is often rapid, and the ornamentation is dense.
    * Vocal parts are often decorated with Tahrir, a vocal ornamentation similar to yodeling.
    * Also, Iranian music is unique in the Middle Eastern tradition in that the different melodic phrases, or gushes are supposed to model the rhythmic stamp and melodic pattern of poetry.
