Tigran Hamasyan


ca. 90 min

The internationally celebrated pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan will present his second solo album at HAU in cooperation with J.A.W. Family: virtuosic jazz improvisation, minimalist electronics and elements of song writing mixed with the folkloristic music of his homeland Armenia. 


“An Ancient Observer” will be released by Nonesuch Records on March 31. On his previous album, “Mochroot,” the Guardian from London wrote: “A phenomenal piano player, an irrepressible entertainer, a promising experimenter with hi-tech gizmology and a creative world-music composer. Mockroot plays vivaciously to all those strengths.” About his new solo record, which contains ten new compositions, the artist himself has said: “These pieces are musical observations about the world we live in now, and the weight of history we carry with us.”
