I've composed for this lovely instrument.  I'll look for the recording and post if I find it/don't forget.

Aesthetic music with excellent performance by the orchestra and instrumentalist. Great recording sound as well. The members of orchestra appear to be really enjoying the music they are playing. I am wondering about the strings of instrument. Maybe skin of sheep or another animal? It sounds great.

Check out Amirov's excellent Piano Concerto on Arabian themes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eKqxH7I2_4

Part of this excellent CD any lover of exotic music would enjoy.

I like the music a lot. I checked other works by Amirov, and they are great. Stokowski conducted his Mugham, and Shostakovich admired his music.  I ordered the disc you suggested and other discs of his music (pic attached). In case, the below are reviews of the disc.  Thank you for the recommendation.

Kanun and orchestra
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah1FHEHjmnA

The instrument, Kanun (or Qanun), sounds wonderful. I adore the color and depth of sound. It sounds a little similar to my favorite Iranian instrument Santoor. The composition is a hybrid of western and Arabic influences. It is a nice mix with Mediterranean feel. As for the Tar Concerto, I imagine it is Iranian/Persian music. The performance is impeccable, and the music has an aura of beauty and mystique. I like the Tar, as well as the small percussion. It is a nice Persian music in a modern/Western format. I have thought about visiting Iran numerous times. But westerners can be arrested with lame reason or no reason any time over there. I should wait for a regime change.

Sorry mate, I missed your post!  Here is one of my more ominous cues with a wonderful oudist (?).

Beautiful and authentic music. The composition is well-structured and well-organized. Sounds professional and authentic. I imagine you plan to add more movements and extend the music. Then I would love to hear an entire work. 😍😍
P.s. when you upload the entire Prokofiev pc3, please let me know!

Yes, this is rather noble music with class. I checked the 2nd and 3rd movements and “Samaii” as well, and I like them a lot. I will look for other compositions by him as well. Thanks a lot for the recommendation!

Here is something from me you might enjoy.  It was recorded during the premiere and had some use of exotic and Arabian scales.  It was scored for large orchestra of 3.3.3.3/4.3.3.1/timp+3/2 hp/strings and around 18 minutes in duration.

Hassan by Delius. A wonderful work. It consists of incidental music to the eponymous play by J. E. Flecker.
