The Easter season is full of powerful imagery; the crucifixtion, the death, and the ressurection, of Christ. This has inspired musical adaptations since its time, and we have been fortunate to have some of the most accomplished composers such as Bach, Telemann, and Handel to set musical works to the texts of Easter and the Passions. Now, A new generation of composers such as Adams and MacMillian have taken up the tradition of Easter music. We at Grigorian have selected some of the landmark recordings of these works, as well as fresh new ones. Let music carry you through this season of Easter.
Arno Babadjanian remains one of Armenian's most famous composers. His music incorporates folk melodies as well as jazz influences. This new release on the Grand Piano label compiles all of his solo piano works, and shows Babadjanian's great mastery as a piano composer. Joy, Longing, and Melancholy mix together in this beautiful disc!
Check out these amazing new releases for this month.
Great artists and great prices. Don't miss out!
For over 50 years, CBC Records has been a beacon of light for Canadian musicians and composers. It has been the launch pad for such great artists as James Ehnes, Glenn Gould, Isabel Bayrakdarian, Janina Fialkowska, Jane Coop, Richard Margison, and many others. Sadly, CBC Records is no longer producing recordings and they no longer have any stock to supply. The titles listed on this page are all that is left in stock. Most of these are single copies, and will never come around again. This is the LAST CHANCE to celebrate the golden years of CBC.
