HANS KELLER'S REVIEW OF FANTASIA ON ONE NOTE
"A German premiere is the "Fantasie on One Note" by the Iranian composer Farhad Poupel, who lives in England and wrote it in 2019. In this impressive work, the entire musical action refers to a single note (here the "b"). With impressionistic sonority, closeness and distance to this tone emerge, as do expansiveness and density in the piano movement. Tonal and overlapping polytonal sound formations result in an excitingly audible sound fantasy, full of shimmering colours and surprising sequences of movement."

A FEW STEPS ON THE “ROAD TO BACH”
"Perhaps the Coda of this work can be considered the most brilliant part of this music in terms of harmony, because the composer, in a creative combination, tries to dissolve the dissonant chords outside the normal tonal harmonies in the consonant, triadic chords."
