All of the composers here combine elements of ancient Azerbaijani tradition with Western forms, colorful orchestration and vivid musical storytelling. This is epitomized in Vasif Adigezalov’s symphonically proportioned Fourth Piano Concerto, while Amirov and Nazirova add a touch of Arabian exoticism into their Concerto. The bubbling energy of Tofig Guliyev’s ‘Gaytagi dance adds a splash of jazz, and Farhad Badalbeyli’s works depict The Sea in an expansive and atmospheric score, followed by the sad tale of the city of Shusha expressed in a vocalise.


Review By Bob McQuiston,Classical Lost and Found,December 2011

Best Find for 2011

Mr. Badalbeyli is...our soloist for the Amirov/Nazirova and Guliyev selections, as well as his own The Sea, giving us technically accomplished, heartfelt performances of these rarities. The same can be said for pianist Murad Adigezalzade and soprano Joan Rodgers in the other two works. The support provided by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) under Dmitry Yablonsky is committed and enthusiastic, ensuring a memorable listening experience when you spin this disc. © 2011 Classical Lost and Found Read complete review
