A tone poem from the Persian Trilogy by Iranian composer Behzad Ranjbaran (born 1955). Like "Seven Passages" and "The Blood of Seyavash", "Seemorgh" is based on an episode from the Shahnameh of Ferdowsi, the national epic of Iran. The Seemorgh was a benevolent mythological bird that appears in the Shahnameh, helping the mighty warriors Zal and Rostam, as well as the beautiful princess Rubada.
