Comments on "Dancing Hands"

"Mr. Parkening has listened to your CD.  He says that it is excellent."

"Extraordinary CD ... enjoyed very much listening to 'Dancing Hands'". Mr. Pereira

"BTW, your CD "Reza and Friends" has been in my car CD player for many months. I really enjoy it". Bruce B.

"Reza, we were enchanted by Dancing Hands!  Such an inspired selection of Guitar Music, so masterfully presented!  We thank you for both the CD and the thought.  It reminds of you and Philip, as of 25 years ago. Again, many thanks." S.M. Professor Emeritus, Department of Policy Analysis and Management, Cornell University

You sent me your CDs several months ago, and I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy them.  Dancing Hands is one of my all-time favorite guitar CDs.  Beautiful job. tim b.

Reza has some beautiful arrangements on his Dancing Hands CD; although we certainly don't play at that level, that's the goal (for example, his Italiana arrangement). tim b.

Reza,  ...     Keep up the good work.  With the world's sorrows all around us, there are isolated islands of joy; I think yours is one of them. Kindest regards, Bob (B.).

I got your CD "dancing hands". It is an enjoyable work of art... the music is very, very nice. Mauricio

Your CDs are wonderful. So much of what you've recorded is on my "Favorite Hit List of All Time" and you do a terrific job. Thank you. R.S.

I do want to tell you that I have never heard classical guitar recorded as well as you have done. Jim Z.

Very nice job on the CD! My wife and I listened to it and its very well done. Sophisticated sound and notch. (Trainer of the stars in Beverly Hills)

Thanks again for enhancing our holidays with such beautiful music! (Judd)

Simply the best!   Thanks for much for sharing your passion for beautiful music.  I have played it continuously for many hours at home and at the office.  Others
who own it here at FileNet have said the same.  Take care and never stop creating...Your friend,  John C

Folks, this is to let you know of a great CD of classical renaissance and baroque music by Reza and Friends - it is called "Dancing Hands". It is a delight to listen to; the liner notes are very informative and fun to read. This is in fact their second CD. Reza is a dear friend - I congratulate him and other musicians on a great artistic accomplishment, which is what this email is about - not a commercial pitch. Dr. M. Baarmand

Dear Reza, Beautiful CD. You've done a magnificant job, start to finish. Not only you and your friends made beautiful music, but you've created a tiny 'coffee table book'  (I don't meant that to be minimizing your effort - just commenting that the size is small for such a lovely, thoughtful, thought provoking book of photos and text). You even had the good judjment to include a quote by FM! I am personally touched that the A.T. we did together so many years ago has taken root and flourished in your Dancing Hands.... let's get together when you're here. Best, B.M.

Small price to pay for such enjoyment! S. McCoy

I listened to your samples- they are beautiful! Would love to have you perform here. Shareen

I like your music a lot, its beautiful! Love Elisabeth

Our phone callers will appreciate hearing your beatiful muic again. Oak Grove School

Did I ever tell you that Pam and I used your CD at our wedding reception Cocktail Hour?  Pam still listens to it in her office.  It's awesome!
David :)

Dear Reza, I do really like your music. It is completely different from the first CD you brought out. Furthermore, I support you because I like the way you are thinking (e.g. the articles you are writing), you are so open minded and have a generous heart....Reto Z.

I'm really so happy with your gentle spirited new CD.  I've been playing it a lot, and hear something new each time. Congratulations to all the players with you, it just works so well together.  Thank you for the extra copy, I will give it to a couple of other fans of yours.  I'm sure it will do well for you,   Gabi B.

I just love your CD's - more and more. Angela J.
"Super CD!" F. Maier

"wonderful music" Larissa U.

Reza:  I received the 2 CDs and I am enjoying them greatly.  A check is in the mail----really.  Boyd H.

17.1.04 Your last CD "Dancing Hands" is indeed superb!! Besides the music I very much enjoy the inside pictures and phrases of wisdom. Many years back I studied quite intensely Krishnamurti's philosophy and read a biography of his. Nice to find him again with your CD. Reza, I would love to order 5 additional copies of the CD for friends... I wish you joy and success with your work and all you do. Take good care & kind regards, Myriam (the person you met in the train between airport-Zurich).

Dear Reza,Thanks so much for the superb cd's you sent me.I just finished listening to them and I was deeply impressed with the lovely way you performed these beautiful pieces.I thought the historical information on the music as well as the philosophic passages were exceedingly interesting and profound.I am very happy for you and your success in these endeavors,they are well deserved and as a friend I feel very proud.Take care Love Jay& family                                                                           P.S I am mailing you a check for the cd's to your L.A. address.I will be sharing your music with family and friends and will certainly be purchasing more of your music in the coming months .Talk to you later Jay E.
I was so happy to hear your C.D. and I think the presentation and the music is wonderful. Congratulation. Please send me another copy. With warm greetings. Gisele B.

Reza, I love your "Dancing Hands" CD, have been playing it a lot.........Ruth C.


Hi Reza:

I got the CDs last night. Thanks a lot! I came back late from a
meeting at Basel and I didn't go to bed until very late as I was
listening to them; they kept me company working on a pending article.
They are really great! Bach is my favorite composer of all time.
K. Afshar

We like it very much, your CD, it's music we really like to listen to. it's the type of music that's very lyrical. Andreas L.

Dear Reza, it was also pleasure to meet you and I've heard your music which is very magnificent. Dr. Balov

i wanted to tell you i was very very interested in your record and i want two more. it's absolutely wonderful. I've played it, I don’t know how many times  - I relaxed - it's really great. The booklet, everything you say, the way other people play as well. congratulations - keep doing the good work.  Lizzy


Dear Reza,

... I have enjoyed the music many times ever since :-)) Thank you very much - what soothing beauty
and peace for the mind, so calming. You and your friends play with a
wonderful spirit and precision, accuracy - and your playing together with
each other, your listening to each other is remarkable :-). ... Today it is like summer in Denmark, warm, no wind - peace all
over, outside and inside of one. Love. L


 Thank you so much for this up-lifting music!

The cd is beautiful, very soft and heartful,I love listening to it,it gives me peace in my heart. Thanks.

Hi Reza

Thank you again for the CD. It is great and really amazing. Just the right
thing for this hectic time of the year!!  I already love it and I even think
the booklet turned out successful. You know you always can do things
differently :) !

Hope you will have success with the CD...

With Dancing hands I found, that the music is played very lovingly and the booklet has so many precious sayings. It's inspiring. Monika K.

Best wishes and good luck for the new year: Simone

- With great pleasure I bought your new CD. It was nice of you to remember me…. Thank you for your music. I wish you a good time and good luck. Best wishes to you. Rosemarie (k)

Dear Reza,

Thanks a lot for sending us your new CD, which we enjoyed very much, and
congratulations on your achievement! Among all the other, more obvious
things we liked very much, we noticed in particular that a great deal of
hard work went not only into the solo parts or pieces, but also into the
details of the accompaniments: They blend perfectly with the solo
instruments, and the guitar timbre is very delicately varied. Another
strong point is the choice of pieces of high musical quality that are
not so well known by and large...

As in your first CD, the booklet adds not only interesting information, but also a
distinctive, personal touch, which I am sure is also perceived by people
who have not met you.

Finally, there is one other good point about your CD (which may have
caused you some short nights recently, I guess): it came out just at the
right time before Christmas ;-) . There are several friends to whom we
would like to give your CD for Christmas if you can send us six copies
by this coming Friday. There is no need for special wrapping, as we will
do this ourselves on the weekend individually for each recipient. The
mailing address is now
With best wishes and regards from us all,


Happy New Year, I love your CD, especially the Greensleeves variations.  YOu are so talented.

I love your CD’s by the way. Christian
The music is wonderful, and everyone who shares the music agrees. Some have downloaded using the I-phone programs. It was a pleasure to have met you, and to be able to enjoy your talent. Keep me posted when you issue new CD's.

reza jan dancing hands is realy beautiful thank you wish you all the best – yadi

I would also like to say thank you for the music. I really like it.. Andreas

Good CD !! I like it – it sounds really cool – you did a good job. P. Cochran

The music is very nice. Nicer than i thought. Doris bus driver

Thanks too by the way for the CD, I am not sure if I thanked you.  It's very professional, and good music too. William s.



Hi Reza Jan
Your CD's are great.I enjoy listening to them while driving. moji

Dear Reza: Thank you for the lovely cd's...beautifully done..they take one away to field of lilies and green valleys...congratulations and many blessings...mitra


I've always enjoyed your CDs and admire your musicianship on the classical guitar.


Moji received your CD's a few weeks ago.  He said it was great and mentioned how talented you were.

- Got a wonderful email from a school that they played my CD so much that it wore out and they need another one. " The CD of yours that we currently have on our phone system seems to need replacing. I thought perhaps it was the CD player, but I purchased a new player and your CD is still skipping. We’d love to have another one. If you’d be so kind as to let me know how get one, that would be great."......... immediately organized. "Reza, Thank you so much for your generosity of gifting us with one of your CDs! I will look forward to it’s arrival. And, yes, I do believe it wore out from too much playing."

Thanks so much for your new CD, Dancing Hands!  It is a delight.  Your
classical guitar work is very impressive and sounds terrific in the 10th
century church where you recorded it.  I'm also impressed that you got
all the reverberation effects naturally.  The other musicians are very
talented as well.  Very professional effort.

Alison, my wife, enjoyed the CD so much she said she wanted a copy for
her own CD collection that she plays a lot.  Then, magically, the next
day a second copy appeared in my mail slot at X.  Were you reading
our minds?  Or did all your friends at X end up with two copies?

Chuck F.


Reza's CD will be enjoyed by many many people. How do I know that?
Becasue I play some of the same pieces myself and they are unfailingly
successfull at connecting with the public. Guaranteed.
Well in one month I buy CD's from Kylie Minogue, some guys playing Gypsy
Swing, Allan Holdsworth, Miles Davis, and Reza Ganjavi!

Regarding the mp3s , they´re great. I didn´t know what to await from the music, but found classical guitar music with baroco influences (I think) and hear there latino america influences as well. I heard only first 3 pieces until now, but i´m looking forward to hear the whole album once again and relax. J. grauss

Hello Reza:

Your CDs arrived this morning (monday). Thanks a lot for the immediate service!

... and the wonderful music of your second CD is filling my house since
lunch time (as you know, I'm here still "alone" and can turn volumes up
or down ...).
Your new CD is running, while I'm writing this message.

Your new CD is of as an excellent quality as the first one.
Keep this level of quality !!! It's extremely important if you want customers
instead of occasional buyers!

And I believe you have matured.
You give yourself more time to play each 'morceau' and you give your partners
a better chance. This is maturity, because in the end YOU win.
WITH them ...

Please send me 3 of your new CD's (WITH your signature) ASAP.
And give me your price for a total of 9 CD's (plus freight twice) with your
next delivery.

I like your music,
I will use your CD's as Christmas gifts,
and I hope to see you again here
and I am sure you will produce new high quality CD's (as you proved already)!

Merry Christmas
and a super 2004 and more,
Joe M.

We really enjoyed your new CD. it is a permanaet part of our home and our two car CD
magazines as well as several friends who got it from us. Please let me know how to send a payment. if you have an account number, I just wire it.
I need another 10- 20 CD's when you have a chance.

Reza N.

I just love the CD.  You are very talented. S. Wilkins

Hi Reza,

                Last week I bought a DVD, CD player, and for the first time I was able to listen to Dancing Hands. It was really good and I enjoyed it immensely. I also enjoyed reading the attached booklet with history of the composers and wise quotes from various thinkers.

Many thanks, Peter Jenkins.

Dear Reza,
You found a new way for distributing your new CD and I hope you will succeed in your action. With the explanations of your letter the selected receiver will surely understand your action. For my concern, I enjoyed very much the first listening of your CD and I will have it always in mind for very special moments where I want to feel well or need some new energy. Unfortunately, this is not the type of music many official radio are broadcasting day and night. Probably, to an aggressive world correspond an aggressive music!
In the next days you will receive my payment.

your CD is nice , some times I play it in my car. Emilia M.

Keep up the good work!  If I knew something about the guitar, I would write something for you.  Ha ha!  Who am I kidding! Kayvan

Hi Reza,


I received your CD, Dancing Hands, last night and was able to listen to it this morning while at work and I have to tip my hat to you!  It's a very nice arrangement and I really appreciate the sound that you've found while recording in the church.  I'm curious as to how you decided on the 10th century church.  Was that a suggestion by Dr. Hohmann or a decision based on the input of your whole group of friends?  I also enjoyed reading the CD insert and the many quotes that you've provided...well done!


Actually, it was almost by coincidence. I had a friend who lived  in that village. I visited many places looking for a quiet place with good sound.




Glad to hear you received the check :-)  I've enjoyed listening to your CD while working...well done! Bobby t.


I am enjoying your cd every day. Ani s.

Thank you for the great job with the new CD. A.Riahi

Hi Reza,
Thanks for the CD ´Dancing hands´ and thanks for sending it without me having to pay for it in advance!

I like it very much. It is excellent music as background when I am working on the computer (makes my brains alert and relaxed).

I´ld like to pay it. How much?


Best greetings,

I just want to thank you for this beautiful CD you gave me today -- I have been listening to it all afternoon since I left the office. I am just amazed at your talent -- you are truly a virtuoso.

Laura: i listen to it regularly and love it

All beautiful. Anoosh

she is shy and she never expresses herself but at the end she said i have to tell you something… she really loves your cd

Frau Vogler said at the end of our conversation: "Frau <>, I have to tell you something. 3 years ago you gave me a CD of your boyfriend. I listen to it many times. After a workday when I can't hear anything else, i always enjoy listen to this music."

It is very relaxing and that is what I need right now with all this going on.

.thank you thank you I have your cds all in a clear space to hear them again will bring an awesomeness close.. yvonne

Really nice listenig to these recordings - just the right kind of music I was looking for! Kaspar

i play your CD at night at times and love it .... Zarrin

She said she regularly listens to your CDs and said they’re so soothing.

Thanks for the beautiful music, Reza! It took me to a wonderful place. Also, the recording quality was excellent!

Hey, man, you're pretty darn good. Just listened to the intros from Friendship and Hands - very nice. Are you Iranian? You're a good-lookin' kid.

I received the CD's today and have enjoyed them so much!  I love them so much!

PS. I bought your "Dancing Hands" album which I listened to during my trip to Sydney. It's absolutely fantastic. You are a true artist and Maestro!!!!! Tom

by the way i went for a long walk today together with dancing hands
it was beautiful!!

Dancing Hands is not only worth a listen, but a definite "BUY,".  Renaissance of lovely stuff.

Just finished listening to all 16 pieces - really moved by this extraordinary talent.
 Hey, man, you're pretty darn good. Just listened to the intros from Friendship and Hands - very nice. Are you Iranian? You're a good-lookin' kid.


Your have a rare talent and a gift of expressing yourself through your music. We were impressed with the purity and natural sound of your recordings, free of the artificial electronic reverb that most other recordings contain. Thank you for thinking of us and know that we truly appreciate your gift.


Best wishes,


Rick and Linda H.



They're great, fantastic.

I gave 2  to my children

Really great, very calming.

Dear Reza,
I have received your email of 28 feb, and regret the delay in response.
Thank you very much for sending me the CD's which were delivered to me on my
last trip to the US, last fall. I take pride in your talents as an Iranian -
your musical skills are absolutely  delightful and I wish you every success.


Dear Reza
Thank you so much for the CD. It's great. I listen it all day. The music is marvellous. The theme DANCING HANDS does really apt. Congratulations!
I'm looking forward to your 3rd CD :-)
I wish you all the best for 2004, Health and Happiness!


This is my first CD review, but I ran into this gem of a CD at a friend's house and was taken by its comforting beauty. I felt this CD needed to be heard by more people. I owe this review to both those contemplating buying this CD and Reza Ganjavi who delivered this delightful work. I am not a student of classical guitar, but, neither am I a neophite. This is unlike any other compilation of guitar pieces that I have heard. The pieces seem to flow into each other, and much too soon, the CD has ended. I have not been exposed to these pieces before, but they left me wanting more.

I was able to find Ganjavi's second CD "Dancing Hands". The music was somewhat different, being more familiar to me with arrangements that included a variety of accompanying instruments, but was equally enchanting. It is a great complement to "In Friendship".

Thank you Mr. Ganjavi, I am waiting for more!

Matt L.

I heard the cd at their house a month ago and liked it a lot. I was trying to find more about it – I was looking for it…  Matt L

You aren’t going to believe this, but a few weeks ago my wife and I went to dinner at a friend’s house and got introduced to a remarkable CD from “some guy in Australia” named Reza Ganjavi.  I wanted to find out where to find the CD and could not find it in stores or in the usual on line suppliers.  A few days ago, my friend showed me the CD case, and imagine my surprise!  Do you have a twin?  I did find it on the internet on the Swiss (I think)  site, but I can’t figure out how to order it, there is no price.  There must be a great story here.  I would love to get both of the CDs.  How do I order them?

My gut says Reza is not your twin, but there is an awful lot to that fascinating man I met last week. Matt L.


Your CD has received a lot of compliments for the people I play it for. Pam f.

Thank you for sending me your CD.It is BEAUTIFUL. Dr. kamali

It surely can't be any better.

wait in frustration!

Dear Reza we met us: march 2000, Grossmünster Zurich, concert……. I left the Grossmünster with your first CD (do you remember?) and enjoyed very much the music (the new one to!!). May be we meet us - years later - when your third CD will be born!

J hope and wish you - in the time between - a lot of success with your wonderful music!



I'am listening your CDs, your interpretation betrays your origines, you are so patient. It is a compliment ! E. L.



Listen to his CDs. They are actually very professional popularisations -

and that is not a criticism - with a clean melodic, song-like

sensibility to their approach. Reza would have been well appreciated 200 years ago and if you ever care to study the self-promotion of musicians of that era, you will find he

is in a long tradition of confidence and ebullient evangelism of his own

music - for which no-one should ever be criticised. David k.

I especially like "Dancing hands". The music is beautiful. Your guitar playing
sounds excellent. I'm glad to have your CD's. S. Gould

Thank you for the C.D. I have listened many times and have loaned it to several friends. There is so much that I like - the variety of the music, the many wonderful words of wisdom from allover our world, the beautiful pictures,
and your very musical performances of the various selections. HURRAY FOR REZA! Marie P.

very very nice!!!!   KERRY LOVED IT TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T. Gibson

listened to your new cd at laila's - it's lovely.

Dear Reza: We did enjoy your CD very much and also the notes accompanying it. I like to play music when I paint and will certainly listen to your music too. Linda (london)

I like it (Marianne) (schonried)

funny, just saw your smile on the CD that predominates my favorite music ....and wandering where you were.... Y.Abaui

How long did it take to record it?.......... It was worth it – it’s really good. susan s.

yesterday I got the following mail from Taiwan: "BTW, I have just visited your animal_net website, and found there is a wonderful and touching slide show. Can I get the original file so that I can translate it into Chinese, and show it and spread it among Chinese community? I like it very much, it is touching. "
 I am sure that the success of the Slideshow has also to do with the lovely music you so helpfully let us use. Thanks again. HERMA

Hey cousin, sorry it took so long. I love the CD. Thanks.  Bobby

Hi Reza,

It was wonderful to see you again...and yes...
Deb and I love both of your CD's...each has
its special musical charms...both CD's are lovely
additions to our musical delights...

Both nicely recorded as well...I love close
miked recordings...where the textural
qualities of the instrument/s are allowed
to take flight from the organic warp and
weave of the all-over musical space...

Lovely work...

I am enjoying the two discs of your classical guitar.  Thank you very much. ……. Thank you very much for the beautiful music on the CDs.  I am enjoying listening to them on my CD/Radio in the kitchen  (where I am most of the time when I am at home) while preparing food and eating. V. ellington

Dear Reza,
The Cds are here, it is a wonderful piece of work! Please indicate to me the cost of the CDs so I can pay immediately.  I can only tell the cost of postage from the parcel.

I am already waiting for your next release!!


We love the music. Ellen H.

Good work on the CD's - I like your approach to the guitar - communication seems to be a priority to you. Peter I.

It's really good music to work to (C. Hurni  massage therapist).

Amazingly beautiful work. congratulations. very beautiful. S. Vahdat

Dear Reza,  Thanks a lot for the CDs.  I love them...You are great. Best Regards, Parisa

Zoe L: it's not the classic stuff that everyone under 40 is bored about.

I listened to your CD several times. I loved it. Very well done. Also the orchestration is very sophisticated. It’s great. Mark L.

Doris H: very nice cd.
i like to give another one to one of my friends - it's so beautiful. Myrjam H.

Thank you for sending us your new CD. It arrived on Friday. And of course we immediately started playing it. Very beautiful music, indeed. We did not listen it once, but several times. We like it very much – especially Barbara (it seems this music and your performance touched a chord with her).... This music is mostly lyrical. You probably chose it with a particular concept in mind. On the other hand you seem to prefer the more lyrical and romantic pieces over the loud a “rocky” stuff that is usually played in the radio programmes.

Anyway, thank you.

Dr. Andreas L.

I got your package. I'm certainly enjoying your recordings. karl w.

We enjoyed your CDs a lot!  And hope to hear more of
your wonderful music in the future.  Here is my Visa

hello reza!  im listening to your cd and you play so beautifully!  the music is so soothing... i love sometimes when music isn't distracting, when you don't consciously realize its there but it reaches you on a deeper soul level... bravo to you!  you might not be getting your cds back any time soon!  just kidding i will pay for them... anyway hope you are well, im so lucky to have met such a nice person at such a perfect time... TN

It's beautiful!! Nicolas B.

We’re still enjoying your CDs, your guitar work is so exquiset, that it’s uncanny in its beauty.  Aside from your solos, my favorite is Anonymous Italiana; I can’t get the melody or the rhythm out of my head.  Take care of yourself, and stay in touch, wherever you are. Jim.

you show a a lot of different colors in a good way - sometimes it sounds like 2 instrument. s.satz (about solo gutiar pieces)

He, big boy, I selled allready 3 of you CDs. Great, isn't it. I wonder how it will be when you are giving some concerts here in the next future? (Peter M)

Excellent packaging, too. Flo H.

 your news CD is wonderful, very calming, I listen to it often. [? Irvine]


Your beautiful guitar player. Neighbour mark


Hi Reza, it was nice meeting you too. I still enjoy the CD very much and play
it a lot in the mornings. It makes me want to pick up the recorder again.
Stay in touch, Annette



Hi Reza,
Just wanted to confirm that I got the CD in snail mail today......I've just
finished listening to it.     The notes kind of fall on the ears like rain
drops to the ground....sounds corny but it's the only description that comes
to mind.  so i'm sticking to it!!!!    Really clear, crisp sound and so
apprarently played with love and passion by all those who play on the CD.  
  It's fantastic!  Well done!   Pooya will love it too as he's a big fan of
classical guitar.

Hope you are selling tons to allow you focus full time on the music!

Now i'm going to go put the CD back on again to put me in the right frame of
mind to prepare my speech for World Malaria Day next Monday!     Did you
know that malaria, a completely preventable disease, is the leading cause of
death of children in Africa more than any other disease.  It's nuts. (about
1 million deaths a year).    One thinks of the brouhaha that was caused over
10 dead birds who got west nile virus in Canada last year and the hysterical
public health response or even SARS and compares to the on-going impact of
malaria on Africa and not even a remotely proportional concern......Anyway
wish me luck.

take care and bravo for a great production!
Niloo Z.



I loved your CD! Gina M.


So beautiful...bravo (mom)

Reza, Thank you so much for sending your latest CD. The whole family enjoyed listening. Your music encouraged N to continue playing Piano and T to play violin. Hope to see you in Irvine one day. Issam.

Dear Reza
Thank you so much for sending the CDs. I was very happy to be able to hear them quietly. At home, they always sound to me different than at the shop. I shall gladly buy the first CD and send you the money this weekend. It is not that the second one is not very beautiful, but the first one is more the music I need at the moment, I don't know why. It is very pleasant to hear and has almost a healing effect. It soothes the brain and makes the heart feel good. Please inform me, when you will be giving a concert or a new CD will come out. I would be very pleased to come to your concert.
Thank you so much and all good wishes.

It was also nice to meet you. Especially because just before our meeting I had a little bit of a difficult conversation with someone, so it felt good to fall into such a spontaneous situation with you.

Yes, I like the cd very much, and also do our customers, it goes very well with the massages... Already to 2 persons I gave the name of your website. Just now I had a glimps on it myself, I don't spend so much time in front of a computer, I don't have one myself so I go to an internetplace or the Library……….., the town where I live. The site looks beautiful and there is so much more about you to read. Already in the little book that goes with the cd I could appreciate the beautiful words and expressions that where written down. So definately I will take more time to read....

About me…………………..


Best wishes,



Still enjoying the beautiful music. Ciao, R.

Subject: Re: Ordered your CD and you wanted to know how I heard about it


     Hi Reza:


     Good to hear from you…………

     The CD is great. I listened to it again after I got your email.

Frankly I hadn't read the write-up on your website carefully so I wasn't

sure what the music would be like, but I enjoyed it totally. I of

course recognized many of the pieces, but I didn't know the composer

Sanz. The musicianship was *great* throughout. It also seemed that you

wanted to show the classical underpinnings of contemporary, popular songs.

In fact, there was a popular, melodius Top 40 song (a female group, I'm sure)

from the 1960's that was based on the first Bach piece on the CD that I think

has "Lullaby" or "Lover's" in the title. Until I heard the Bach piece I didn't know

that. I wish I could think of the name of the song! I read through much of the long

but interesting brochure that comes with the CD, and saw K's picture and at least

1 quote from his writings.


     I also read that one of your degrees is in computer science.... Anyway, I lent your CD to a guy I work with, who has gotten to be

a very good programmer, but actually has a Ph.D. in music and used to be a college teacher. He plays trombone in the local symphony (I live in s. Oregon),

but is learning the guitar. He also thought the CD was very good.


     Take care, good luck, and thanks for the very enjoyable music.



I can't wait to hear this CD.  My favorite song in the "world" is Greensleeves, so to hear it on your CD will be heavenly.  I would like to order 4 CDs please.   I wish you all the best one could hope for, you have contributed to the lives of people in a genuine and fabulous
way.  Now enjoy your accomplishment!
Looking forward to hearing the CD,
Your friend in California,
Stephanie W.


You raised the level, the class of the party.
(francoise's dad)


Hey musician,

Thanks for the CD, it sounds great. I love the ones with the recorder. Especially Scarborough fair, it's a song which reminds me of the good old time in Dublin, drinkin Guinnes with my friends ( irish musicians), who used to play and sing this kind of songs.

last night I heard your CD. It's so beautiful, so calm and nice. Beautiful pieces; you have good taste.
Hello dear friend Reza,
you could really surprise me with your new Album.
Actually for a period of time i was far away from Classicals and was concentrated on Flamenco. You know why, don't you? Now you have turned me back again. Well i can say i have heared this pieces 1000 times and from various Artist and now i hear them from one of my friends and further more an iranian which makes me proud.
I should say it is really Perfect. Performance, Arrangement, Accompaniement, Design, Texts, Graphics, Contents...everything is more than Professional.
As a matter of fact i play some of them too and underestand what you and your friends really do and i love it too. specially nr. 1 Canarios.
With all the best wishes

sounds absolutely wonderful. amber k.

Today I listen your CD "dancing hands". When I am painting I like as well your CD.  Congratulation!  I like this kind of music.  Gabriela U.

oh by the way I finally got around to listening to the entire cd and enjoyed it very much!! more so than the 1st..just a matter of taste I guess. I felt the production on "dancing hands" had a much "Crisper" sound.  peace be with you.  Tom g.

Thanks Reza - first class playing! great cd's... I do appreciate those cd's and hope that you come up with some more. Dr. Gene W.

I’ve wanted to tell you that the pictures on your brochure are just spectacular, I like the one as well where you jump into a swimming pool.  B.Ludwig

I am sitting here at work enjoying your CD.  It is really wonderful!  How clever of you to pick out songs with such history.  I gave the other CD to my mother for Christmas and she loves it also. susan m.c.
Dear Reza,
                 I just listened your CD. It is very pleasant and the technical quality of the recording is very good. You played well and your partners are very good. I'm sure that people will like it very much and I hope you'll be able to sell many many copies!!!!
                 My best wishes.


We enjoyed listening to it. Parnak

your cd is great. fernanda m.

He loves your other CD so! [Lori about jim's like of I.F.]

It sounds very good. A.Miolin

thank you for the nice music. dominique S.

It is very nice! Cornelia S.

You can hear that it was a lot of hard work. For example, the instruments are together at the end as they go out of the piece, very fine, together, to stop and go out is fine art. This is just one example - there are a lot of points that shows it was hard work, this is one of the points. For instance when you have a cello or guitar as an accompaniment, it's not too loud, and not too low, so exactly measured that it's something fantastic. Like Lily Kraus etc. they play ensamble together but one is not dominating, it is hard work [to do that right]. I wish you luck and hope you continue to make excellent CD's.  Benjamin D.
enjoyed it.  Arline

I like it. Sanja D.

I like it. A.Dreyer.

Thank you for your efforts and for your good music. Christian L.

Lieber Reza

Besten Dank für deine CD und für dein Interesse an unserer CD.
Mir gefällt der Klang deiner CD sehr gut. Der Klang der Gitarre trifft vom
spielerischen wie auch vom aufnahmetechnischen Aspekt her meinen Geschmack
Die Bearbeitung der Kompositionen ist sicher ungewohnt. Ich finde sie
interessant und reizvoll.

Herzliche Grüsse
Jürg M.


Dear Reza
Best thanks for your CD and for your interest at our CD.
I like the sound of your CD very well. The sound of the guitar meets from the
playful like from also the reception-technical aspect my taste
very much.
The treatment of the compositions certainly is strange. I find her/it/them
interesting and appealing.
Best regards
Jürg M.

Having picked up a few er um vibes about these works here, I bought 'em.

I like them. It's entertainment. It is listenable, and folk with no
special interest in CG would buy them happily. If Reza was to
accidentally drop in to an Edinburgh pub and find a flute player and
fiddle player, he'd probably oblige them to reveal a few classical
pieces as well as the usual O'Carolan and trad.anon - and be very well

It's unusual to find a guitarist who is willing to let the instrument
play all its roles - as an understated accompaniment, allowing other
musicians front of stage, as well as a solo performance. I have
particular empathy with that as I really enjoy providing accompaniment
to other musicians (nothing really puts as big a grin on my face as
hearing something well played and thinking I am not wrecking it!).

Quite superbly produced and very professional, if you overlook the photo
gallery aspect :-)

And Angelo Gilardino's pieces which Reza has performed are ABSOLUTELY in
the tradition. Their connection to the variations, structures and
underlying motifs of European music from 300-100 years ago is amazingly
clear, and it's almost as if a couple of centuries of composers for
drawing-rooms and salons from Ireland to Hungary have found voices again.

As it's past 1.00am I am probably writing nonsense. working too late.


Actually, though Reza's CD's *are* pleasant to listen to. Many people could learn a thing or two from his playing. He plays very musical and doesn't butcher music that is too difficult for him. *That* is a rarity. I might give him a hard time
about some of his posts around here, but he does deliver good music. In fact, it is a refreshing foil to my listening. I even enjoy listening to something as simple as Forgotten Songs.


Look, there are many people who would buy Reza's CD and just love it, yet be bored with a CP CD.  Different strokes for different folks.  He and his group joined efforts and produced something that took their individual talents and elevated it, which is still nothing to sneeze at..  A lot of players who (perhaps) play a lot better have done a lot less.  I hope that made and continue to make a bundle.  If he just got $1 from every person who might enjoy it, he could retire.  You just have to find them when they have that dollar handy.

Nylon Cheers!



I'll say again, I like the Cd's. I think we could all learn from them. The Cd's
are what they are and aren't what they're not. A little bit of this can go a long
way in a performance and can provide relief to a demanding (either on the player
or listener's part) program. After hearing a big monster Sor piece that doesn't
get played enough, some large and obscure sonata published this year, and (you
fill in the blank) it is nice to hear in the second half at least a little bit of
Tarrega, Malats or whatever else.

Itzhak Perlman is one I've seen do this type of program well. It simply works. We
need variation. I'm afraid so many are concerned with finding unknown gems, that
music like this doesn't get a little bit of attention. In music like this, you
can't hide. And Reza does a pretty good job with it, and is more musical than
many world class players I will respectfully not name.
