    Watch: Tigran Hamasyan Performs NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

    Tigran Hamasyan, whose new album, The Call Within, was released on Nonesuch Records in August, has performed an NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert. The set, filmed by Elena Petrosyan, includes solo piano takes on "Our Film," from the new album, which NPR Music's Suraya Mohamed calls Hamasyan's "most enterprising release,"and two earlier tunes. You can watch it below.

    "Tigran first wowed me in 2006," says Mohamed. "Earlier that year, he'd won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition and his performance at the John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts for NPR's annual Jazz Piano Christmas program was truly memorable. I've been following him and his robust discography ever since." You can read more at npr.org.

    You can pick up a copy of The Call Within and hear it now here. Hamasyan performs a set for the virtual EFG London Jazz Festival on Saturday night; tickets are available here.
