Hosseinali Vaziri-Tabar was born in 1906 in Tehran. As a child, he demonstrated a special love for music which led him to the music school and later to the military band. In 1931, after completing his high school education, he was offered a position as a music teacher in Kazemeyn, Iraq. Following this assignment, he entered the Tehran Conservatory and was granted the diploma in 1936. He also spent four years on another music teaching assignment in Shiraz, where he composed Be Yad-e Shiraz, a song that was later arranged by Rouhollah Khaleghi for the National Music Society Orchestra and performed by Qolamhossein Banan. Khaleghi also arranged Vaziri-Tabarís melody, Be yad-e To, (1957).
Throughout his short life, Vaziri-Tabar was sought out as a solo clarinetist of choice by his contemporary composers and conductors. He played in the Novin Orchestra, which was founded by Alinaqi Vaziri at Radio Iran, the Golha Orchestra, and all the other fine orchestras of Radio Iran.
Vaziri-Tabai created a special technique to execute the most intricate
ornaments and sounds of Persian classical music. His playing was
impeccably in tune and sensitive, and his tone was noted for its
soothing, sweet quality. His mastery of the clarinet has not been
equaled in Iran since his time. It was said that after hearing Vaziri-Tabarís performances, one would never imagine that the clarinet was not
created to play Persian music!
He taught at the School of National Music from the early days of its existence until the end of his life. He is survived by his daughter Giti, who graduated from the School of National Music and has been a prominent performer of violin and Qeychak.
Vaziri-Tabarís life came to an unfortunate and untimely end in 1958.
