Music Millennium

One of the most sought-after and decorated composers of his generation, Richard Danielpour refers to himself as "an American composer with a Middle Eastern memory". His distinctive voice is part of a rich neo-Romantic heritage which includes 20th c. American and European composers alike. Darkness in the Ancient Valley, a symphony in five movements inspired by recent events in Iran, utilizes a wide range of Persian folk-melodies and Sufi rhythms.Toward a Season of Peace is an oratorio which explores violence and war in the name of religion, using the season of spring as a metaphor for change and transformation towards songs of peace through forgiveness. Danielpour's insistence on music having "an immediate visceral impact" can be heard throughout his oeuvre, and the beautifully translated Persian poetry and rich spirit of harmony in Toward a Season of Peace make it symbolic of a brighter future for our time.
