"Hassan Haffar's Aleppo Suites consist of various poems in free form that are set to music and sung. Each suite has its own flavor. Interpretation varies according to the different schools and singers, who evoke three separate aspects of existence in love poems, bacchic songs and poems about nature. These may be used alternately, but they all express a single emotion: yearning for the beloved. Haffar's musical and vocal skills blend introspection and sensuality and these three albums confirm him to be a master of the genre."
