When the Rivers Met represents a new collaboration between two extraordinary artists who come from different musical traditions, but who have created an exciting path for merging their respective artistic voices. A. J. Racy, is a Lebanese-born composer and phenomenal virtuoso on a variety of Middle Eastern wind and string instruments, who has achieved an unrivaled reputation in the fields of middle eastern music and scholarship. James Peterson is a highly innovative American composer and arranger, in the Western symphonic idiom. When the Rivers Met is a powerfully evocative and masterfully created musical suite in which Racy and Peterson weave a breathtaking tapestry of orchestral sounds punctuated by Racy''s performances on the nay, kawala, buzuq, ''ud, plucked/bowed-tanbur and other Middle Eastern instruments.
