Lezginka. Vals

By Edvard Mirzoyan

Edvard Mik'aeli Mirzoyan (May 12, 1921 – October 5, 2012) was an Armenian composer.

Mirzoyan was born in Gori, Georgia. He was an atheist. Initially schooled in music in Yerevan and graduated from the Komitas State Conservatory, Mirzoyan went on to Moscow to further refine his art. In late 1956 he was elected president of the Armenian Composers’ Union, a position he held until 1991. He was a professor of composition at the Komitas State Conservatory, and president of the Peace Foundation of Armenia.

Mirzoyan's compositional output is relatively small but quite distinguished, combining graceful lyricism with intense drama. With its formal structure and tonal design, his style has been described as Neoclassical, with elements of Armenian folksong always present. Mirzoyan's String Quartet, Cello Sonata, Symphony for Strings and Timpani, and Epitaph for String Orchestra have become notable additions to the repertoire.

Edvard Mirzoyan is buried at the Komitas Pantheon which is located in the city center of Yerevan.
