Last year at JAZZMADRID, he was so successful that this pianist is now returning to the stage at the Fernán Gómez Theatre. It’s an ideal opportunity for anyone who has already seen him to repeat the experience and to enjoy his music again. And for anyone who hasn’t seen him yet, to be finally able to do so.
He has been awarded many international prices, such as the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz prize. He’s published almost a dozen albums and written almost a hundred compositions. Lots of them materialise as if they were the work of a goldsmith, enamelled on melodies born from the traditions of his country. Songs that speak of hope, joy and pain in his sweet Armenia, as the poet Eghishé Charénts would say.
It all started when his family moved to Los Angeles, and Tigran, who was then studying classical piano, was invited to perform at the Yerevan Jazz Fest. He left nobody indifferent. Several tours ensued, and he wisely began adding electronic elements to his songs and his originally sculpted voice.
Once again, the time has come to examine the reach of his latest compositions. In them, this young pianist continues to universalise his music based on the inspiration he draws from the rich folklore of Armenia.
Piano: Tigran Hamasyan
