"Requiem", the title track of award-winning composer and pianist Fariborz Lachini's latest album, is available for Grammy Award consideration in the Best Classical Contemporary Composition category. Praised as "stunning" (Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com), "galvanic and vibrant" (Stephanie R. Myers), and "elegiac...seductive" (Lauren Proctor), Requiem represents a new pinnacle in the storied career of the acclaimed musician.
Born in Iran, Lachini's musical career has spanned three 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 smash success) to classical music lovers worldwide.
Focusing primarily on film composition in recent years, Lachini's music has been showcased in both domestic and international productions. In 2006, his critically-acclaimed score in "Requiem Of Snow", Iraq's submission for the Academy Awards, was cited in Variety as a highlight of the picture.
While active scoring motion pictures in North America and abroad, the prodigious Lachini continues to be prolific in the music scene, with the four CD set "Scent of Yesterday" and the recent album release of "Golden Autumn 4", the fourth installment in the beloved Golden Autumn series. In addition to "Requiem", Lachini has two other works available for consideration for this year's Grammy Awards -- "Aida" for Best Pop Instrumental Performance, and Golden Autumn 4 for Best New Age Album.
Powerful and moving, "Requiem" is an astonishing musical accomplishment. Kathy Parson writes, "One would be hard-pressed to find a more passionate or eloquent song of mourning in any genre of music than Lachini's "Requiem.""
The album "Requiem", featuring the title track, is available for purchase at iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and other online stores.
