Alexander Spendiarov's piano music

Post by Lance » Tue May 04, 2021 3:35 pm

Grand Piano has issued a two-CD set [852-853] of music by Alexander Afanasyevich Spendiarov [Spendarian] {1871-1928}, a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov and friend of Glazunov. This is the complete piano solo and chamber music performed by Mikael Ayrapetyan (and company in chamber music). I was so impressed with Ayrapetyan's Tigan Chukajian's piano music [GP-859] that I had to hear more by this pianist, not only for his personal artistry (beautifully recorded in Moscow), and Chukajian's music, it melds Russian and Armenian elements in a clever manner. I am more impressed with the chamber music selections with violin and cello all on disc 2 with both, Mikael and his wife, Yliua Ayrapetyan as the piano collaborators. The cellist is Demian Fokin while the violinist is Vladimir Sergeev. ♫

More Armenian piano music, eh?

I'll be sure to give this a try, Lance! Thanks!

Have you heard this one yet? Oops, I see by your next post that you have! :wink:
