Farhād Fakhreddini (Persian: فرهاد فخرالدینی) (Born 1937, Tabriz, Iran) is a renowned Iranian composer, conductor and founder of Iran’s National Orchestra. Farhad Fakhreddini was born in Tabriz in 1937. Recommended by his father he began studying violin and from 1957 for a short while he studied with Ostad Abolhasan Saba. After finishing a 3-year course of radif with Ali Tajvidi he entered the National Music Conservatory and started to study musicology. His mentors in the conservatory were Professor M.

Barkeshli, Professor E. Melik-Aslanian, Zaven Hakupian, Professor M. Foruq and Professor Khachik. He graduated from the conservatory in 1965. Invited by Hossein Dehlavi, that was then the president of the National Music Conservatory, he underook in the conservatory the courses of harmony, form in the music of Iran and the combination of poetry and music.

From 1965 he was the instrumentalist, composer and concert master in the orchestra of radio, while playing violin and viola in the Golha Orchestra. Afterwards he also joined the Barbad Orchestra. His arrangements and compositions were frequently performed be these orchestras. These ensembles coalesced at last to form the large Symphony Orchestra of Radio and Television.

The conducting of the new orchestra was entrusted to him after two short periods of collaboration of the orchestra with Fereydun Naseri and Morteza Hannaneh. This career began from 1973 and lasted till 1979 when he resigned from it. Meanwhile he gave concerts with the Baku Symphony Orchestra. In addition to composing and conducting he showed a deep interest in the old music of Iran.

Some of his monographs on the subject have been published. His deep knowledge of Iranian classical and western classical music coupled with his experience in directing orchestras made him the most appropriate person to conduct Iran's National Orchestra. His works include orchestral music (Homayun, Del-Angizan, Peyvand, Reng-e Mahur...); orchestral songs (Eshtiaq, Hymn of Spring, Spring Comes...); soundtracks of the movies The Husband of Ahu-Khanum, Kamal-ol-Molk, The Days of Awaiting, The Report on a Murder, and the score for the television serials Sar-beh-daran, Ebn-e Sina (Avicenna), Emam Ali, and Kif-e Engilisi. The legendary Farhad Fakhreddini was awarded the Order of Merit, first degree, in arts and culture by the Iranian government in June 2005. In July 2008, a stamp was issued in his honour. In July 2009, Fakhreddini quit his position with the Iran's National Orchestra. Read more on Last.fm.
