Composer insights with Samson Marzbani

Samson Marzbani, a composer based in France but of Iranian/Indian parentage, is having an event tomorrow (Saturday 26 January) at the Royal College of Music, which will give the audience an insight into his compositional techniques and current project, Un jour infini. The event will include a performance of the composer's new work for flute quartet Un jour infini, a substantial piece lasting over 50 minutes which is due to be recorded and issued on disc. The performers will be Wissam Boustany (flute) and Daniel Rowland (violin), Paul Cassidy (viola) and Jacqueline Thomas (cello) - members of the world renowned Brodsky Quartet. The flute quartet, Un Jour Infini, is the transcription from piano improvisations where no notes were either added or changed from the original impulse of the work. During the recording of Un Jour Infini  Marzbani will be also recording piano compositions for an upcoming new solo piano CD. The event takes place at 7pm in the Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall at the Royal College of Music on 26 January.
