THE CALL WITHIN
Tigran Hamasyan – Piano / Vocals

The Armenian pianist Tigran Hamasyan is without doubt one of the greatest contemporary global talents, displaying remarkable pianistic ability and a profound compositional sensibility. He is equally at home with jazz, classical, rock and Armenian sacred music. Tigran’s childhood was characterised by the numerous challenges thrown up by the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. During that period in fact, electricity was frequently unavailable in homes, but Tigran’s mother nonetheless managed to encourage him to study piano. He is now known throughout the world, above all for his talent for improvisation and his ability to “feel” the music and to transport the public to another dimension.
