Born in Austria to a Persian family of musicians, 23-year-old cellist Kian Soltani has performed with a number of the world’s leading orchestras, including the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim. For this concert of traditional Persian music, which takes him back to his artistic roots, Soltani is joined by the Ensemble Shiraz, whose musicians will be performing instruments such as the tombak and the tar (a Persian drum and lute, respectively).
