A significant addition to the expanding Grand Piano catalogue of Armenian piano music. Born in Turkey to Armenian parents, Komitas was a priest, composer, musicologist and singer who used his Western training to develop a new approach to Armenian music. The Seven Dances for Piano evoke the specific timbres of Armenian instruments, while Msho-Shoror is one of the most ancient of all Armenian dances. The Crane is one of his best-loved pieces.
