Iran’s National Orchestra
Iran’s National Orchestra was founded in 1998 to perform the repertoires of Iranian music and back composers for performing national,local and Maghami music.The first performance of the orchestra which was attended by a number of the masters of Iranian music such as Mohammad-Reza Shajarian and Ali Tajvidi was warmly received by people.
For 11 consecutive years, the orchestra was conducted by FarhadFakhreddini, but in 2009 he resigned, and after a 2-year hiatus, the orchestra directors decided to appoint young conductors including BardiaKiarasand ArashGouran, butthe orchestra couldn’t survive.
In 2015,Roudaki Foundation took charge of Iran’s National Orchestra and introduced a new structure for that. Subsequent to its reopening,FarhadFakhreddinibegan to conduct the orchestra once again although he resigned for a second time in 2016.From then on, conductor of the orchestra has been FereidounShahbazianwho persistently follows the goals set for the orchestra.
