Baku, February 9, AZERTAC
The MusicExpo in London has hosted a world premiere of Piano Collection by Azerbaijani composer Jevdet Hajiyev. The event celebrated the centenary of the Azerbaijani composer.
Lithuanian and Russian pianist Jelena Marakova showcased a selection of pieces from the book at the event.
This volume is published by EVC Music Publications, in a project commissioned by the Muradov Family Archives. For intermediate to advanced level players, this book will be a useful addition to any piano teacher, advanced student or keen amateur’s piano library. With the expected Russian inflections, this music is generally tonal but with a direct influence of Twentieth Century masters such as Prokofiev and Shostakovich (Jevdet Hajiyev’s teacher).
