The sensational Armenian American pianist Tigran Hamaysan live at Band on the Wall.

“Amay…zing Tigran. Now you are my teacher!Herbie Hancock

Tigran Hamasyan has been raising eyebrows and dropping jaws worldwide since winning the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition in 2006. Astonishingly virtuosic and sensitive, his playing infuses traditional Armenian melodies with a dazzling jazz sensibility and refined melodies. This unusual marriage of musics has picked up high-profile fans including Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau and Herbie Hancock; his most recent album, A Fable, topped the jazz charts in France.

There are many brilliant and perfectly finished young jazz pianists around,” stated The Telegraph four-star review earlier this year, “but Hamasyan stands out because he has something important and urgent to say.”

This unreserved seated concert begins at 8pm but out Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks.
