Scent of Yesterday is a collection of classic Persian Pop or folk melodies arranged for solo pia by composer/pianist Fariborz Lachini. Arrangements are in slower pace than the original pieces which makes the series an excellent choice for background music as well as instructional purposes but more so Lachini tries to bring back and reconstruct some of the best but almost forgotten melodies of his home country in his Scent of Yesterday series to a style enjoyable by today's audience. This is the companion sheet music book to his Scent of Yesterday 4 album. 1 Gole Yakh 2 Booseh Bar Labhaye Khoonin 3 Shokoufeh 4 Asheghaneh 5 Sahele Darya 6 Dele Ghafel 7 Tapesh 8 Gole Gandom 9 Harf 10 Sana Da Galmaz 11 Booye Eidi 12 Vaghteshe 13 Pooste Shir 14 Nafas 15 Nasihat ISMN: 979-0-706060-10-1 Corresponding MP3s: http: //www.amazon.com/Scent-of-Yesterday-4/dp/B003Y1BVOQ Single Sheet Music or complete eBook, compatible with Kindle/iPad/other eBook readers, in PDF format is available from artist's official website for download using your amazon.com account: http: //www.lachini.com
Lachini's musical career has spanned four decades and transcended both genres and borders - his musical sensibilities reflect a fusion of Persian and European styles, and the popularity and appeal of his music has expanded beyond the confines of his home country (where his first solo piano album, Golden Autumn, instantly became a success) to classical music lovers worldwide. Since then his solo piano books have been taught by music teachers in Iran. Lachini's compositional style is sometimes categorized as neo-romantic although he prefers to call it light classical . His music has a powerful emotional content that speaks to the listener even without the words and breaks down cultural borders.
