Album Notes
Ziryab Trio was founded to give a deeper expression to Oriental Art music and its various genres. The members of Ziryab, who are also members of the acclaimed ensemble Bustan Abraham, believe that y maintaining the rich Oriental tradition they will establish an important basis for creating new and original music. The ensemble in its instrumental make up is the basis nucleus of any Middle Eastern classical music ensemble (Takht), which usualy includes five instruments: oud, violin, riqq, qanoun & ney.
Ziryab Trio concentrates on performing Arab and Turkish music from the 19th & 20th century. The ornamental element and virtuosity of the musicians' improvisational ability are very significantly expressed on this trio in a manner that flows with the content and spirit of the music. Significant dynamic changes, various articulations ans arrangements along with special interpretations give the trio a deepened dimension in emotional expresion.
The trio performed worldwide and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.

Tayser Elias - oud
Nassim Dakwar - violin
Zohar Fresco - percussion
Guest artists:

Fantastic repertoire and great performances!
This is a wonderful live recording of great Arabic/ Turkish classical music. For drummers, this is a textbook of the samaii rhythm featuring some very nice riqq playing.

This recording, taken from a live concert in 1995, is a wonderful collection of music from the Arab Near East performed by virtuoso musicians. The performances are fresh and energetic and the interpertations of the repertoire are exciting. The liner notes are scant and composers whose works are featured are, at times, not even credited at all. A few words about the music, it's creators, the setting in which it was taking place etc. would have been nice but it seems that the producers of the recording were a little clueless on the topic of Arabic and Ottoman music. Nonetheless, for anyone who is interested in Arabic music from the Near East this is a wonderful recording of instrumental music.


Memories of Istanbul
This CD is a catalyst to savoring Turkey in your mind and soul. Absolutely Great!
