A fascinating survey of Hayg Boyadjian's music highlighted by a work for native American flute.

The six compositions on this recording by the Armenian-American Hayg Boyadjian, cover a six-year period of his compositional output. Each was written for and is dedicated to specific musicians, although not all of them figure as performers on this recording. The musical language reflects Boyadjian's diverse background. Born in Paris of Armenian parents, he grew up in Buenos Aires and then relocated to the United States. He has drawn musical inspiration and materials from all these different cultures. Inspired by Boyadjian's interest in astronomy, the last work on the recording (Pleiades) was written for James Pellerite, who has dedicated himself to the native American flute.

Review:
"Each piece is very rewarding and Boyadjian has an ingenious love of structure and logic throughout these very disparate works." (Fanfare)

"This collection of recent works by Hayg Boyadjian draws from the composre's diverse musical and non-musical influences for compositional inspiration, and the result is very exciting. ...be prepared for an interesting excursion into the passion that comes from so many different roots." (The Flutist Quarterly)

"...a good starting place for those wishing to hear, enjoy, and understand some new, modern serious music." (Flutefocus.com)
