More Info:

Music in Time of War, the new double-album from pianist Kirill Gerstein, places the music of Komitas, pioneer of ethnomusicology and founder of the Armenian national school of music, alongside that of Claude Debussy, a seminal composer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who held a deep admiration of Komitas's music. Both composers were profoundly affected by the implosion of their worlds - Komitas by the Armenian Genocide, Debussy by the First World War - and their music reflects a close emotional alignment. Music in Time of War grew from Gerstein's fascination with music's power to reflect a narrative. The project will be released as a double CD album and will be accompanied by a hardcover book containing a series of illustrations and detailed essays in three languages commissioned by the pianist.
