Javad Ma'roufi- Golden Dreams and Other Romantic Melodies جواد معروفی طلایی رویاهای کلاسیک ایران پیانو

I have no idea which thrift store I was mining when I scored this gem of record; but it was somewhere in Virginia. Well, I've had it now for probably 10 years and it has definitely become one of my personal favorites. For the record, romantic piano is not normally my thing, but this one appeals to the Satie fan in me. Ma'roufi's compositions are heady, meditative and and exotic (to my ears) without feeling the slightest bit new age.


The Tracklist:
1. Prelude no. 1
2. Prelude no. 2
3. Prelude no. 3
4. Prelude no. 4
5. Prelude no. 5
6. Golden Dreams
7. Kou Kou
8. Jila
9. Fantasie on an Armenian Theme Pt. 1
10. Fantasie on an Armenian Theme Pt. 2
11. Fantasie on an Armenian Theme Pt. 3
12. Fantasie in La Minor

there's plenty, i think. pretty sure he's sort of an iranian national hero. just scored a live performance somehwre random. i'd just do some googling of his name & mediafire, etc. will post more here eventually- but this one's special to me, as its from my personal lp collection. i just love this album so so much.
