Tigran Hamasyan in Serres

Tigran HAMASYAN (2003, 2004)


Tigran's talent as a jazz pianist was first revealed in 2000 at a Jazz Festival in Yerevan. In 2003, he won first prize at the Juan-les-Pins competition in the intrumental jazz category, so this 17-year old is well on his way to go to the top of his profession. In his first album, Introducing Tigran Hamasyan, he shows a real maturity as a jazz pianist with his very own style which owes much to the influence of predecessors such as Bill Evans and Keith Jarret, and to the sound of his home country.
