Symphonic fairytale for narrator and orchestra
Damien Lehman, music
“When a typically Persian voice immerses itself in a European orchestra, the orchestra in turn seems stirred from within by the irregular rhythms of the orient. In Ali Baba, these two worlds influence one another and communicate, meeting at a precise point : the Zarb, where the Orient and the Occident reunite for the occasion.”
