Philadelphia Orchestra's principal flutist, Jeffrey Khaner, discusses the Ranjbaran concerto

Quick Overview

A chance meeting after the Philadelphia Orchestra's performance of Ranjbaran's piano Concerto led principal flutist Jeffrey Khaner to ask the composer why he didn't write a concerto for flute. Ranjbaran's response "Why not?" has resulted in a major new concerto for the flute, one already making its mark in the repertoire. "Much of the music has a florid, sensuous feel, making consistent use of Middle Eastern scales and evocations of the ney, a Persian folk flute…Ranjbaran marries that to an all-out virtuoso cast for his soloist, which had the effect of making it sound turbocharged." (Greg Stepanich, Palm Beach ArtsPaper
