Poetry of Sa'adi and Rumi, arranged and composed by Hossein Omoumi.
This series is somewhat "over-prettified" by Omoumi's micromanagement instincts, especially considering the live nature of the recordings. However, there is a wealth of good material here, from interesting instrumental passagework to fine singing.
Notable is Omoumi's use of tuned percussion, which seems like a definite improvement.
