Pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan launches an eight-city tour of the United States at The Old Church Concert Hall in Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday. The tour, featuring music from his 2018 EP, For Gyumri, and 2017 album, An Ancient Observer, continues out West with shows in Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, Fresno, and San Francisco, culminating with his sole East Coast concert, at Sony Hall in New York City, on October 24.

Hamasyan then returns to Europe, performing in his current hometown of Yerevan, Armenia, and in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, and France this autumn. See below for all of the currently scheduled shows; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

"As a pianist and composer, he draws inspiration from jazz, folkloric and classical sources, in ways that feel both hypermodern and practically ageless," says NPR. The Huffington Post calls him “one of jazz's most dynamic artists.”

To pick up a copy of For Gyumri on CD, 10" vinyl, MP3, and FLAC, head to the Nonesuch Store now. The EP is also available on Amazon and iTunes , and can be heard on Spotify and Apple Music. Here is the video for the song "Rays of Light," from For Gyumri, directed by Elena Hamasyan:
