Info for Ekmalian: Piano Works



Makar Grigori Ekmalian, a student of Rimsky-Korsakov, played a significant role in the development of Armenian music in the 19th and 20th centuries, expanding its genre boundaries and contributing to the formation of a new national musical language. The folk-song arrangements represent Ekmalian’s skill in blending Armenian lyrical expressiveness with European stylistic colours. His magnum opus, the Patarag (Divine Liturgy) was canonised in 1895, and is still in use by the Armenian Church today. This album of world première recordings by the acclaimed Armenian pianist Mikael Ayrapetyan are performed from the composer’s unpublished manuscripts.

In my research into Armenian classical music, I have concluded that it developed from a foundation of two branches: the native folk music and spiritual music. As the first country to adopt Christianity as the state religion, Armenia has an ancient and rich heritage of sacred music. Ekmalian's work is an example of music officially canonised by the Armenian Church, which lives in the heart of every Armenian on this planet. I am happy that be able to express and share with the world the masterpieces of Patarag and folk music treatments by the genius Ekmalian!” — Mikael Ayrapetyan
