Composers on the Coronavirus Crisis: Franghiz Ali-zade

The consequences of the coronavirus crisis move us all. We have asked our composers how these months and weeks affect their artistic work. Their answers will be published successively in this section.

Franghiz Ali-zade

(was born on May 28, 1947 in Baku / Azerbaijan. As a pianist, the composer is also strongly committed to the works of contemporary composers from the former Soviet Union and works from the Second Vienna School)

„Stay at home:
Difficult time, especially for young people. But for me, that's best time: for concentration and composing, for reading and thinking. Right now I compose my ‚Quatuor pour la fin du temps‘ (as Olivier Messiaen) for Rudersdal Festival, which, I think, will be cancel.
That's all, what I can say.“

(Franghiz Ali-zade, 6 April 2020)
