Mohammad Esmaili


Mohammad Esmaili

Mohammad Esmaili (Persian: محمد اسماعیلی; b. 1934, Tehran) is an Iranian percussionist. He grew up in a musical family, which included his uncles Morteza Goreenzadeh and Musttappha Goreenzadeh, trumpet and clarinet players. From an early age, Mohammad was impressed by the "father of modern tombak", Hossein Tehrani, which attracted him to this field as a tombak player.

Career

Mohammad Esmaili was tombak accompanist in some of the music ensembles of the time and later joined the tombak players ensemble of the General Bureau of the Fine Arts of Iran, which was organized and formed by Hossein Tehrani. Mohammad Esmaili joined the National High School of Music in 1964 as a tombak instructor. He was later appointed director of the tombak department. He trained and taught numerous students using the Amozesh Tombak (Persian: آموزش تنبك) (Rudiments of Tombak) exercise book written by Tehrani.

In 1966, he was promoted to director to the tombak department of the Ministry of Culture and Art, a position he held until the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979.

Compositions

Mohammad Esmaili has composed various tombak pieces derived from Iranian melodies and has performed these pieces in several events in the Talar Vahdat (formerly Roudaki Hall) in Tehran. Esmaili remained devoted to his teacher Tehrani, composing a tombak piece called "Tribute to the Maestro", with an accompanying melody written and arranged by Faramarz Payvar. This piece was performed by Esmaili's tombak players' ensemble, with accompaniment by the other Iranian classical instruments, as a recital in memory of Tehrani.
