This far-reaching double album, recorded and mixed in three days in Lugano, introduces a quartet featuring pianist Tigran Hamasyan with Arve Henriksen on trumpet, guitarist Eivind Aarset and Jan Bang on live samples. The musicians had played in diverse configurations on ECM, but with Hamasyan at the centre of the sound, bringing with him ancient folk melodies transfigured in the compositions of Komitas, other inspirations come into play. All four players are at a creative peak here, whether freely reflecting upon Armenian themes or spontaneously shaping atmospheric soundscapes together.

Pianist Tigran Hamasyan’s Luys I Luso ("Light from the Light") is an extraordinary exploration of Armenian sacred music, hymns and sharakans (Armenia’s liturgical songs) as well as chants, all arranged for voices and piano. This music of the 5th to 19th centuries is given new and dramatic expression through Hamasyan’s improvisational imagination and committed performances from Armenia’s leading choir, the Yerevan State Chamber Choir. Hamasayan has long been deeply interested in Armenian sacred music, increasingly drawn to its “incredibly beautiful melodies".
