Tehran Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to Gaza’s children

The Tehran Symphony Orchestra, led by Manouchehr Sahbaei, performed at Vahdat Hall on November 16 and 17, staging works by renowned Iranian and international composers in memory of the children of Gaza.
The orchestra, accompanied by oboe soloist Arian Qeytasi, presented compositions from notable figures such as Iranian composer Hossein Dehlavi, Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi, and Czech composer Antonín Dvořák, according to IRNA.
The orchestra’s performance was influenced by the recent Zionist regime’s crimes in Palestine, with a special dedication of Johann Sebastian Bach’s ‘Air’ to the children of Gaza before commencing the main pieces.
The first part of the concert included the performance of Dehlavi’s ‘Suite of Bijan & Manijeh,’ featuring movements titled Andante and Allegro, with Sahbaei conducting and accompanied by string players.
After the suite, the orchestra played Vivaldi’s ‘Concerto for Strings in G major’ in three movements: Presto, Adagio, and Allegro.
In the second part of the concert, with Qeytasi as the soloist on oboe, the orchestra performed Vivaldi’s ‘Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra in C Major’ in three movements: Allegro non molto, Adagio, and Allegro.
Following the break, the orchestra, now joined by woodwind and percussion instruments, delivered the final part featuring Antonín Dvořák’s ‘Symphony No. 8 in G major’ in four movements: Allegro con brio, Adagio, Allegretto grazioso, and Allegro ma non troppo.
