Description: 2 CDs. Spendiarov (Spendiarian) was a student of Rimsky-Korsakov and a close friend of Glazunov who wrote that he was a ‘musician with an impeccable, widely versatile technique’. Spendiarov’s music combines Russian and Armenian elements and is saturated in folkloric influence – and he vitally enriched the expressive range of Armenian music as a composer, pedagogue and champion of his contemporaries. Mikael Ayrapetyan (piano), Yulia Ayrapetyan (piano transcriptions),Vladimir Sergeev (violin), Demian Fokin (cello).
