The 6 cd set, The Classical Music of Azerbaijan arrived yesterday. Very fine recording. Each disc presents symphony, concerti, chamber music, piano works, ballet, and opera separately. The set offers many works of Amirov and Karayev of course. Unexpectedly the piano music sounds very attractive. So glad that I purchased the set. The below is a review.

I am slightly OT but IMHO this is of high interest for you (sadly only in Turkey)

This series from turkish label Raks was an improvement also if non organized

Roy, thank you for the info. The disc looks interesting. There must be volume 1 as well? Somebody maybe selling it on ebay. I will keep looking for it. Also next time I go to Greece, probably I will go to Turkey and ask about the disc and other recordings. You may want to check out the Azerbaijan 6 cd set above. Thanks a lot and stay safe there.
