I like Amirov, it is just cute. I have nothing else to say. But I have to write more. For what? Well.... The price is low, the recording is quite interesting.

Beguiling exotica. Oct. 10 2010
By Thomas H. Westbrook - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like Khachaturian, you'll love this stuff - brash, colorful, exciting, great fun to listen to. I have an old Everest LP of Leopold Stokowski and the Houston SO playing Kyurdi Ovshari from way back in the late fifties. I find Stokowski's tempo a little more exciting in that piece, but that in no way takes away from Yablonski's interpretations - excellent sound and performances. I would really like to hear more of Amirov's music.

Something new Oct. 2 2013
By Kevin D. Levellie - Published on

Like most people, up until the 90s everything was "Russian". It's good to see the Azerbaijan people come out on their own. The music is introspective and dramatic with some bright elements especially in the Azerbaijan Capriccio. Another praise to Naxos for introducing us to something of depth and value which we haven't heard before.
