Arno Babajanian: Melody (sheet music)

A beautiful piano piece by Armenian composer and pianist Arno Babajanian. I made this arrangement after hearing a concert where this piece was performed. I went directly home and made this for the guitar.
Arno Babajanian (1921-1983) was born in Yerevan, Armenia. By age 5, his musical talent was apparent, and the composer Aram Khachaturian suggested that the boy be given proper music training. Two years later, in 1928 at the age of 7, Babajanian entered the Yerevan State Musical Conservatory. In 1938, he continued his studies in Moscow with Vissarion Shebalin. As a composer, Babajanian was active in most genres and even wrote many popular songs in collaboration with the leading poets such as Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Robert Rozhdestvensky among others. Much of Babajanian’s music is rooted in Armenian folk music and folklore. But generally, the way in which he uses Armenian folk music is in the virtuoso style of Rachmaninoff and Khachaturian. His later works were influenced by Prokofiev and Bartók. Praised by Dmitri Shostakovitch as a “brilliant piano teacher”, Babajanian was also a noted pianist and often performed his own works in concerts.

La Rubia “The Blonde” (sheet music)

A tribute to my (Per Hallgren, luthier) guitar “La Rubia”, #202, made in 2011. She is called “La Rubia” because she has sides and back in Spanish cypress wood. I sold her in 2015 because I got an offer I couldn’t say no to and I also received a new, very good! guitar from Per Hallgren the same month. In April 2019 I had a chance to buy her back from the owner for a reasonable price. I am very happy to have her back again and I will keep her this time! I played her and got inspired to compose this piece. I think I am influenced by my recent arrangement of Astor Piazzolla’s “Oblivion” in this piece. It is not a tango but it has some Argentinian “vibes”.

J. S. Bach: Arie BWV 212 (sheet music + TABs)

My arrangement of J. S. Bachs Arie “Mer Hahnen Neu Oberkeet” (We have a new governor) from Cantata BWV 212. To me, it is related to springtime because in Sweden we sing “Now The Green Is Coming” as a tribute to trees getting new leaves.
BWV 212, is a secular cantata. It was entitled the “Cantate burlesque” (burlesque cantata) by Bach himself, but is now popularly known as the Peasant Cantata. It is the latest definitely dated Bach cantata.

Notre Dame Enflammée (sheet music)

In horror I watched the Notre-Dame Cathedral burn on the news. Crying, I went to my studio and composed this piece “Notre-Dame Burning“. After 5 hours I was finished but the cathedral was still burning.
I visited Notre-Dame in 2008 after a concert in Southern France and was struck by it’s beauty, size and history. I pray it will be re-built again to its former glory.
Per-Olov Kindgren, 16th April 2019

Avec horreur, j’ai vu la cathédrale Notre-Dame brûler aux nouvelles. En pleurant, je suis allé dans mon studio et j’ai composé cette pièce “Notre Dame en flammes“. Au bout de 5 heures, j’avais terminé mais la cathédrale brûlait encore.
Après un concert dans le sud de la France, j’ai visité Notre-Dame en 2008 et j’ai été frappé par sa beauté, sa taille et son histoire. Je prie pour qu’il soit reconstruit à son ancienne gloire.
