Fikret Amirov stamp.jpg

Despite the admiration of Leopold Stokowski (who recorded Azerbaijan Mugam) and Michelle Kwan (who skated to Gulustan Bayati-Shiraz), the music of Fikret Amirov is still rarely-encountered in the West. For the centenary of Amirov’s birth (on November 22, 1922), enjoy his Six Pieces for Flute and Piano and selections from the ballet The Arabian Nights. Get to know Azerbaijan’s best-kept secret – Fikret – better late than never, this Sunday at 10 pm.
