French orchestra voices peace and friendship at Isfahan’s Chehel Sotoun Palace


The Alliance Orchestra under the baton of Iranian-born French maestro Pejman Memarzadeh promoted peace and friendship during a concert, which was held at Isfahan’s Chelel Sotoun palace on Thursday.

The concert named “Friendship Exchange between Iran and France” was held in the presence of Iranian and French tourists.

Alliance Orchestra Director Caroline Sénéclauze said that a large number of her compatriot artists and individuals are willing to visit the country to become familiar with its rich culture.

“We pursue the goal of strengthening cultural bonds between the two countries. Furthermore, we intend to introduce some French traditions to the people in Iran,” she added.

As part of the cultural night of Iran and France, the performance featured pieces by Bach, Gioacchino Rossini, Pablo de Sarasate, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Beethoven and several others.

Memarzadeh founded the Alliance Orchestra in 1995 in order to strengthen relations between the East and the West. He is also a cellist by training.
