Discover the new generation of classical music

In Red Sofa Young, a new generation of classical musicians and composers presents itself biannually. 

Kicking us off is the Sabr Ensemble, led by Iranian composer Farid Sheek. He is joined on stage by Russian cellist Maya Friedman, Dutch harpist Doriene Marselje and Iranian opera singer Mohsen Masoumi. Influences from ancient Persian music and the contemporary classical western tradition are woven together into an eclectic, melancholy, yet hopeful sound.

‘Sabr’ is Persian for ‘patience’, and the phrase ‘Sabr, sabr!’ is used to calm and reassure. In the very same manner, Farid Sheek, the ensemble’s composer, tries to bring the audience hope and togetherness. In Farid’s latest work, the ensemble combines live electronics with visuals, with the help of Soheil Shayesteh.
