Flutist and composer


Throughout his career as a flutist, what characterizes Kouchyar Shahroudi, is his curiosity for all the repertories.

His Persian origin opened the mastery of the ney to him.

His experiences in Iran, France and Germany together with his great technical virtuosity ensures his capacity for adapting to the specific difficulties of each period and composer.

In this manner, he can embrace all the periods: Baroque music, classical music, romantic music, this is in addition to improvised ,

ethnic and modern musics.

His discography offers ten recordings ;

(of Mauro Giuliani with Messiaen via Ravel, Roussel and Debussy, without forgetting the Persian music).

This has made it  possible to identify a sonority which exhibits special maturity and humanity in his music.

Currently he is the flutist at the Opera of Rouen-High Normandy orchestra, professor at the Arthur Honegger Academy of Le Havre, and member of ensemble « A Piacere ».

As a composer, Kouchyar Shahroudi benefits from the multiple aspect of his experience which includes the history of the composition for his instrument.

His Iranian origin allows him to incorporate Persian influence with the Occidental culture.

He can leave to search for new sound worlds, crossing cultures:

this is the direction of his creative spirit.
