Petersburg State Conservatory, where he received his Doctorate degree in Composition studying with Sergei Slonimsky. Hosseini's work encompasses a wide range of musical genres. As a musicologist, his research is concerned with the rich and diverse folk music of the Persian provinces. As a theoretician, Hosseini devotes himself to studying the nature and structure of the uniquely Persian phenomenon of the mugham.
His works show the strong influence of monodic music, which he interprets in a completely new and independent way. Hosseini has made use of his musicological research in works such as “Baluch,” “Taleshi Hava,” “Concerto for String Quartet,” and “Peshtpa,” all of which display the influence of Persian folk music. Hosseini’s music is regularly performed at such festivals as The St. Petersburg Musical Spring, The Contemporary East and West Music Festival, Reverse Perspective, The St. Petersburg Renaissance, Trajectories of the Petersburg Avant-garde, The Contemporary Past, and Sound Ways, and has been interpreted by the St.
Petersburg State Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, the St. Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra, and other prestigious ensembles. A number of his works have been published by the Compozitor Publishing House in St. Petersburg. Read more on Last.fm.
