The rarities of Pianists Corner: Komitas, 7 dances for piano

Komitas, 7 dances for piano

Komitas (1869-1935), a priest, composer, musicologist and singer, is a key figure in Armenian culture. He worked for the rediscovery and revival of traditional Armenian music. The 7 Dances for Piano, with their monothematic structure, the use of Armenian modes and the very particular rhythmic writing, are characteristic of Komitas’ work of re-appropriation and re-creation.
