Tigran Hamasyan-For Gyumri



Even on this shorter album, Armenian pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan displays a tireless ambition with his compositions, performances and eclectic approach. Over the course of his career, this young artist has released a wildly diverse stylistic set of releases that portray his eclectic and sometimes contrasting music tastes. The muse knows no borders or limits for this gifted pianist. While his first releases—starting with World Passion (Nocturne Records, 2006), and New Era (Blu Jazz, 2007)—showcased his considerable talent in jazz, his third and breakthrough album Aratta Rebirth (Plus Loin, 2009) portrayed his taste for composing works of a true fusion nature. It's here that he began fusing his love for jazz with traditional melodies from his native Armenia. Since then his worldview expanded considerably and he has relentlessly followed his muse where the rich and timeless musical heritage of his homeland would serve as constant inspiration for his music, regardless how eclectic and diverse it has become.
