1. Etude No.1
2. Markos and Markos
Dear friends, we’re honored to present you Tigran Hamasyan’s first sheet music edition, the long-awaited, containing the Etude No.1, “Markos and Markos” and “Lilac”—three pieces for solo piano. These three stay in Tigran’s repertoire and are much loved by the listeners and the live audience worldwide ever since the release of their audio-recorded versions.
The music notation in this edition offers not merely the transcriptions of the recorded album versions, but much more, including the elaborated parts which Tigran Hamasyan added after numerous concert performances. Thus, we present the pieces in their most updated development.
The edition comes as a .pdf file ready for printing out double-sided. This means that it is arranged as a common printed book, with spreads preserving the order of left (even) and right (odd) pages. It has a front and a back cover, a title page, the credits and themselves the pieces. We did our best to keep the music as easy to read as possible, while, as it often happens with music notation, we also were victims of the convenient & timely page turns, which for us was a priority, and which resulted in condensed engraving on some pages.
All three pieces were transcribed and engraved by Savva Terentyev, and edited together with Tigran Hamasyan himself. The publisher would like to extend his sincere gratitude to Peter Trubinov, who gave advices and offered corrections to music engraving, to Vahram Murdyan who generously donated several illustrations to the project, and to Yuri Kutkov who designed the covers and the title page.
This edition is the fruit of a very meticulous work, and is presented as a part of a bigger edition—the printed score containing 7 pieces, which will be released by the end of Spring.
