    Watch: Tigran Hamasyan Performs Facebook Live for Armenia

    Armenian composer and pianist Tigran Hamasyan gave a fifty-minute Facebook Live concert on the official Armenian government Facebook page from his home in Los Angeles today. The event is part of a twice-weekly concert series initiated by the government "to make the daily lives of self-isolated and isolated citizens more interesting," according to Armenian Public Radio. You can watch it here:

    Tigran Hamasyan has released two albums—Mockroot and An Ancient Observer—and the EP For Gyumri on Nonesuch Records. "I believe that our childhood experience shapes who we become when we grow into adulthood," Hamasyan said about that 2018 EP, which was named in tribute to his hometown of Gyumri, Armenia. "For Gyumri is an ode to my birthplace, the town that nourished my childhood world with great experiences and made me who I am."

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music. Its songs are "brimming with poised musicality," writes the Times's Jon Pareles. "Graceful melodies, supple guitar syncopations, sophisticated harmonies and a voice that can sparkle with anticipation or cry out in pain capture all the hope and heartache of her narrative." NPR's Suraya Mohamed says: "The songs on this album, La Havas' third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics, but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."

    Steve Reich's seminal 1974–76 work Music for 18 Musicians—the Nonesuch recording of which, performed by Steve Reich and Musicians, won a Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble Performance—is among ten compositions chosen to inspire visual artists to create their own works for the inaugural Concord Art Prize. The prize, created by Concord Music Publishing, is open to all UK artists, with a prize of £10,000. "Over the years I have heard from several artists, including Gerhard Richter, saying they have used 18 Musicians while painting, sculpting or working with media," Reich says. "I am very excited to see what it may inspire."
