Jevdet Hajiyev is a truly talented composer with a unique ability in writing music of symphonic depth and philosophical content.

D. Shostakovich
Hailed by Dmitry Shostakovich as his ingenious successor, Jevdet Hajiyev is regarded as one of the leading composers of classical music in Azerbaijan. To celebrate the centenary of his birth, Muradov Family Archive has released a Piano Collection, book 1 and a series of concerts will be held in some of the finest concert halls around the world, including Carnegie Hall on April 5th, 2017. Hajiyev drew his inspiration from the grand art of Azerbaijani mugham and ashiqs as well as sounds of traditional folk instruments tar (plucked lute), kemancha (spike fiddle) and saz (a long-necked folk lute). His can be described as a groundbreaking composer who delivered a colourful overtones to Azerbaijani symphonic classical music. The organic fusion between classical forms and folk music in Hajiyev’s compositions created unique intonations, melodies, and exceptional harmonies. Hajiyev’s legacy includes eight symphonies, three poems, opera Veten (Motherland) written in collaboration with Gara Garayev, string quartets, ballade and sonata for piano, choral and vocal works to name a few. These works are among the treasures of the classical music that will continue to delight audiences around the world.

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    I acquired this collection primarily because of the beautifully lyric and passionate “Ballad”, but was happy to discover other interesting pieces, incl. Scherzo etc.
    I also liked the cover featuring stylised Maiden Tower.

    Hopefully, Book 2 will be coming soon.
