Mohammed Fairouz is one of the most frequently performed, commissioned, and recorded composers of his generation, melding Middle-Eastern music and poetry with Western structures to deeply expressive effect. Native Informant, written for leading international soloist Rachel Barton Pine, embodies Arabic fiddling motifs as well as songful excitement, underpinned by a lament for the victims of the Egyptian Revolution. The lullaby Tahwidah and the song cycle Posh evoke tenderness and loss, whilst Jebel Lebnan was commissioned by the Imani Winds and musically chronicles events from the Lebanese Civil War and their effect on the current face of Lebanon.

"... I consider this one of the most interesting, varied, and engaging classical albums of the year so far, and one I shall undoubtedly be putting on my Want List."

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - July/August 2013


 "...Fairouz is free of stylistic fetters, and has fully embraced the exotic beauty and the aesthetic possibilities that exist for composers today. In fact, frequent performances, commissions and recordings of Fairouz’s work may be the most salient proof that he is among the first artists of his generation to realize that the old divisions between east and west, traditional and modern, self-expression and social consciousness are no longer relevant. This recent release from Naxos is a fitting example of Fairouz’s ability to seamlessly blend a multiplicity of influences—from classical, early modern, jazz, Arabic, and eastern music—within profoundly resonant conceptual frameworks. Taken in its totality, this five-movement composition is an excellent demonstration of Fairouz’s musical ingenuity."
