- Mikael Ayrapetyan (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
Among Armenian composers who worked principally in Armenia without seeking to establish any worldwide reputation, the composer E.A. Abramian (1923-86) was one of the most significant and respected. Probably his most important work for the piano is the 24 Preludes (1952/72). The cycle remains within the realm of tonality, although much expanded and enlarged through the use of chromatic elements that often generate harmonies of considerable complexity. Pianist Mikael Ayrapetyan's repertoire ranges from the baroque to the contemporary and includes rarely performed Armenian works.Notes & Reviews:
