Persian classical music goes back a long way. Musicians like Barbod were legendary in the empire of the Sassanid era.

Until the early 20th century, musiqi-e assil was heard almost entirely at the royal courts of the monarchy. The Qajar dynasty ruled until 1925, with their influence declining since the turn of the century. Musiqi-e assil became a more common past-time for the next few decades, especially after cassettes were introduced in the 1960s. Before the 1979 revolution, Iran produced the singing star Gholam Hossein Banan and instrumentalists like Abolhasan Saba, Ahmad Ebadi, Hossein Tehrani,Faramarz Payvar and Hassan Kassai.

The 1979 revolution launched a renaissance in Persian classical music, from which emerged national stars like Parisa, Parviz Meshkatian, Jamshid Andalibi, Kayhan Kalhor, Mohammad Reza Lotfi, Hossein Alizadeh, Madjid Khaladj, Shahram Nazeri and, most famously, Mohammad-Reza Shajarian. Though the revolution created classical music's popularity, music and Islam have not always meshed well, and many Iranian conservatives disliked even the simple melodies and lyrics of classical music. The role of women in music was restricted, though they were allowed to continue performing as instrumentalists and in chorus.

Most notable living Iranian classical vocalists are Mohammad Reza Shajarian, Shahram Nazeri, Parissa, Salar Aghili, Alireza Ghorbani, Homayoun Shajarian, Afsaneh Rasaei, Davod Azad, Hamed Nikpay, Ali Jahandar and Mahsa Vahdat.

More notable Iranian progressive musicians whom at their own time have created modern and contemporary Persian classical based theories and styles include the late Ostad Vaziri, the late Ostad Varzandeh, the late Ostad Hossein Tehrani, Ostad Faramarz Payvar, Ostad Bahman Rajabi, Alan Kushan, Shirzad Sharif, Pejman Haddadi, etc. whom have impacted and influenced the classical Iranian traditions with their respective innovative musical approaches.
