Mortezā Mahjoubi: Piano
Amir Naser Eftetah: Tonbak (CD I 1 -10) (CD II 1-4)
Morteza Mahjoubi was born in 1900 in Tehran. His father, Abbas Ali Mahjoubi, played the ney. The family owned one of the few pianos in the city, and his mother, Fakhressadat, could play a little. He started his music studies with Hossein Hang Afarin; later, Mahmoud Mofakham accepted him as his student.
Morteza was only ten years old when he accompanied Aref Qazvini, the renowned singer and poet, in a concert. He developed a unique technique of playing the Persian classical music on the piano, which remained true to the ornamental and monophonic nature of the music. He devised a special tuning system for the piano which enabled him to play in all the different modes and dastgahs. He was, indeed, one of the jewels of  Persian classical music. His playing charmed and mesmerized his listeners. He is known to be the only pianist who was able to play the piano as though it was created for Persian music.
Mahjoubi was present at the performances of Radio Iran from the very beginning. He was a prolific composer whose beautiful works have been performed by the Golha Orchastra, sung by the best singers of the time, and remembered by many with great fondness. Karevan, Nava-ye Ney, and Che Shabha are some of Mahjoubi’s best creations.
Morteza Mahjoubi died in 1965 in Tehran.
Amir Naser Eftetah was born in Tehran and his teachers were Hussein Tehrani and Houshang Mehrvarzan. He went to the radio in 1334 (1955) and cooperated with the Golha group. His students were Bahman Rajabi, Abtin Jalali, and Morteza Ayan.
