Alireza Farhang
Biography

Iranian-French composer Alireza Farhang was introduced to music at a very young age as he grew up within a family of musicians. He took piano classes with E. Melikaslanian and R. Minaskanian and studied composition with A. Machayeki at the University of Tehran. He later pursued further studies in orchestration with M. Merlet at the École Normale de Musique de Paris and perfected his composition skills with Ivan Fedele at the CNR de Strasbourg. He was involved with the Musical Composition and Technologies program as part of a new European Course (ECMCT) jointly developed by IRCAM, and the T U, UDK and HFM Hanns Eisler in Berlin. His active participation led him to closely work with B. Pauset, T. Hosokawa, K. Saariaho , M. Jarrell, Y. Maresz, G. Pesson and T. Murail.
