Mehdi Hosseini is a Persian composer of contemporary classical music. His music and style has demonstrated his creative capabilities as a composer and his research abilities as a ethnomusicologist and theorist. Hosseini has written symphonic music and chamber orchestra pieces for ensembles and soloists in various compositional genres. At its core, his music reflects his on-going research into the astonishing variety of Persian regional folk music and, in particular, the structure of Dastgah music. Mehdi Hosseini’s works show a strong monodic music influence, originally interpreted and incorporated into a personal style.
