 Update me on new releases by Amirov

Fikret Amirov (11/22/1922 - 2/02/1984)

Fikret Amirov was one of the most prominent composers in Azerbaijan and in the former Soviet Union. His music was strongly influenced by Azeri folk melodies. Amirov was awarded the title ‘People’s Artist of the USSR’ and the USSR State Prize. His most famous works include the symphonic works Shur, Kurd Afshari, Azerbaijan Capriccio, Gulustan Bayati-Shiraz, To the memory of the Heroes of the Great National War, as well as the Double Concerto for Violin, Piano and Orchestra.

Symphony ‘To the memory of Nizami’ was written in 1941, which was the 800th anniversary of Azerbaijanian poet Nizami. Composed for string orchestra, the Symphony has four movements, each of which portrays the image of Nizami as a philosophically-thinking poet, and a leitmotif of Nizami runs throughout. The leifmotif is based on Azerbaijani melodies.
