Fountains of Fin (pronounced “feen”) celebrates one of the most enchanting gardens, the historical Garden of Fin in Kashan, Iran. The garden in its present form was built in the 16th century but historical references go back to the medieval period. The music is also a tribute to the great 19th-century Vezir and reformer, Amir Kabir, who was slain in the bath of the Garden of Fin. In writing Fountains of Fin, I was inspired by the utmost beauty of this captivating garden with its tall cypresses, fragrant flowers, and hundreds of spring-fed fountains, as well as its dark and violent history.
