From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alireza Mashayekhi (born 1940) is a notable Iranian musician, composer and conductor. He is one of the first Iranian composers who has pioneered Persian Symphonic Music.

He was born in Tehran in 1940. His first teachers were Lotfollah Mofakham Payan (Iranian music), Hossein Nasehi (Composition) and Ophelia Kombajian (Piano). He then pursued his passion in music in Vienna. His teachers in Vienna include Hanns Jelinek and Karl Schiske.

After completing his studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna, he went to Utrecht, the Netherlands, to pursue his study of electronic and computer music, which included attending lectures by Gottfried Michael König.

In 1993 with cooperation of the pianist Farima Ghavam-Sadri, Mashayekhi founded Tehran Contemporary Music Group and in 1995 established Iranian Orchestra for New Music. This orchestra alongside many concerts in Tehran, produced its first CD in 2002 which was released by Hermes Records.

In 2007 Sub Rosa (label) released a double-disc anthology Persian Electronic Music: Yesterday and Today 1966-2006 which included classic compositions of Mashayekhi's work along with Ata Ebtekar. In 2009 Brandon Nickell's Isounderscore label released the vinyl double LP Ata Ebtekar & The Iranian Orchestra for New Music Performing Works of Alireza Mashayekhi "Ornamental". Mashayekhi granted Ebtekar full creative freedom to work with the Iranian Orchestra for New Music to arrange and transform Mashayekhi's compositions.
