Wonderful book, the writer has described both Ostad Elahi life and analyses his music.You can understanding what is really music is about.I had heard about spiritually music.but this book is about divine music, I believe this is higher than spiritually music.Professor During whit his knowledge in both West Music and East Music, and familiar with both philosophy and East culture, specially cultures in Iran, could show with all details relation between philosophy's point and cultures point with Ostad Elahi Music.Because I will hardly recommended this book to read and get some idea, what a music should about, and to get some understanding aesthetics and when you will reach it.
