Award winning pianist-composers VYACHESLAV GRYAZNOV and KAREN HAKOBYAN join forces as a virtuoso duo to present Mr. Gryaznov’s original composition Rhapsody in Black in three movements based on Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess in the first half, and Rachmaninoff’s beloved Suite No. 2 for two pianos in the second half.


'The art of the piano transcription is alive and kicking – or, more accurately, alive and singing in the hands of Vyacheslav Gryaznov.'

––Jed Distler, Gramophone UK


“Hakobyan’s precocious enthusiasm for making and writing music is infectious.”
