Charshanbeh Souri Charshanbeh Souri
Samin Baghcheban

Samin5.jpg Late Samin Baghcheban is mostly known for his choral-orchestral masterpiece "Rangin Kamoon" (Rainbow) written for children and young adults in the late 1970s. Rangin Kamoon II supposed to be his second collection of works for the same target audience but never performed or recorded. 
  After Samin passed away in 2008, Kaveh his musician son decided to re-collect all the written material of his father which he arranged with care, performed and recorded in Istanbul. The album title has been changed to Charshanbeh Souri (Wednesday Firecracker) - an ancient Iranian celebration on the last Wednesday eve of the Iranian calendar year. It is celebrated by jumping over bonfires, lighting firecrackers- to honor the very day that Samin died.

Kaveh says:   
  For three or four years before his death, and just just for our own pleasure, my father and I would spend our Sundays recording some of his pieces. These were simple recordings. We used only a few instruments and our own voices.....

  On the funeral day of my father I made the decision to give voice to many of his pieces that by fate had been lying in wait,

 in silence....

  Completing the performance and recording of this  album was the result of eight years of continuous and grueling work. Other than the love and respect I have for my father and his works, no other consideration could have compelled me to commit to such a difficult project. It was this love and respect that gave me the energy and strength to overcome the obstacles that such a project presents....
