Kochari (Old Armenian Folk Tune) for Solo Piano

Elia, Anthony J.

This work, named "Kochari," is based on the rhythms and themes of the well-known Armenian dance of the same name. Translated by some as "knee-come," this piano adaptation was written in April 2013 to express the elements of the Armenian folk tradition through the dynamic tonality of the piano. Other works based on Armenian folk music are being written by the composer and will be made available on Academic Commons.
