Adeliia Faizullina:
Nowruz (2023)

For symphony orchestra (double winds)

Duration: 10'30"

Premiered by Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Peter Askim in Raleigh, NC on April 2, 2023. 

Program Note:


Nowruz is the holiday celebrating the arrival of spring and a new day throughout Persian, Tatar, Arabic and Turkic speaking worlds. In the piece, a new light is born; it is young and innocent, like a child that will grow up to be big and all-embracing, to give its warmth to new life. But the light, too, is cold, carrying the shadow of winter. Can it become the Light of Renewal?
