[Listen to Tigran Hamasyan in the Nextplayer]

For his new album, Tigran Hamasyan delivers a dynamic solo piano collection, A Fable, with lyrical songs that range from gracefully refined pieces to energetic experiments with rhythmic and harmonic diversity. One of today’s most vital and original young jazz artists who won the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition in 2006, Tigran finds inspiration from traditional Armenian folk music as well as poetry. With all of the songs featuring Tigran’s inventive arrangements, A Fable features the pianist’s own compositions as well as a wealth of covers, including Armenian melodies and a mystical rendition of the jazz standard, “Someday My Prince Will Come,” as well as music inspired by the poetry of Hovhannes Tumanyan and Gegham Saryan.
