Info for Tigranian: Works for Piano



Nikoghayos Tigranian belongs to the first generation of composers and folk song collectors who laid the foundation of an Armenian national style. Tigranian’s piano transcriptions of folk dances is perhaps his most important legacy, emulating folk instruments and capturing and preserving colourful depictions of Armenian folk life that are simple in texture and rich with harmonic and melodic detail. His interest also extended to Persian improvisational vocal-instrumental poems or mugams; expressive pieces that influenced contemporaries and subsequent generations of composers.

"Tigranian's music for me is a detailed image of Armenia, her colour and breath. Composing music of folk dances and mughams for piano was among the highest achievements of Tigranian, which echoes the music of Komitas. When you perform and listen to this music, you are amazed at the richness of culture and landscape of Armenia. This image remains forever within you. I am very glad and grateful to God that I have discovered this music, and I can live in such interesting times and share it with you!” (Mikael Ayrapetyan)
