In memory of Nour Ali Borumand:
41 years ago, one of the most important masters of Persian Classical Music died. The Radif of Persian music, which is the repertory and actually the knowledge of Persian music, saved by his efforts on recording and teaching and introduced to the modern world via his lectures in Illinois University. He was a master on Persian music who could play most of Persian instruments, although he was blind! Also he was very informed about Persian vocal music considering his friendship to some great masters such as Taherzadeh and Davami.
He had no public performance, but many concerts of Persian Classical music was based on his authority and instructions and leadership during the 1970s in Iran.
One of Borumand's student, described his position for me in a private dialogue as a Lens! Getting almost all the important aspects of Persian music from available sources and passing them to his students in different field of Persian music including theorists, composers, singers and instruments players.
