Vasif Adigezalov (1935 - 2006)

Vasif Adigezalov was one of Azerbaijan’s most distinguished and prolific composers and performers. He studied the piano with Simuzar Guliyeva and composition with Kara Karayev. His father, Zulfugar Adigezalov (1898–1963), was a prominent hanende singer…Adigezalov grew up listening to mugam, which he later incorporated in his works. Adigezalov was awarded Azerbaijan’s highest national awards, People’s Artist of Azerbaijan (1989), State Prize (1990), Glory (1995), and Independence Order (2005). Between 1973 and 1983 he held the post of Director of the Baku Music College and taught at the Baku Music Academy from 1961, serving also as Head of the Choral Conducting Department. He was chairman of the Azerbaijani Composers’ Union from 1990 until his death in 2006.

Among Adigezalov’s compositions are operas, operettas, oratorios, cantatas, four symphonies, symphonic poems, four concertos for piano and orchestra, concertos for violin and orchestra and cello and orchestra, songs and romances, instrumental music, incidental music for plays, and film music, that display bold imagery and brilliant melodic invention. Adigezalov was also active as a pianist and performed his own piano works, which form a sizeable part of his distinctive contribution to piano music in Azerbaijan.
