About David Karapetyan

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. One night as a young teenager, I couldn't sleep because I could hear music I really liked. It sounded somewhat like late German romanticism. I went to different open windows to try to find where it was coming from, and realised it was in my head. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Murray Perahia, Murray Perahia - Bach Piano Concertos Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Murray Perahia, Murray Perahia plays Bach - The Complete Recordings András Schiff, J.S. Bach: Das wohltemperierte Clavier A miracle for me began with Murray Perahia's recordings of the Bach concertos, English Suites, and Partitas, continuing into András Schiff's recordings of the Well-Tempered Clavier, French Suites, and Goldberg Variations. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Aria For My Father (While Walking the Streets of Old Europe Alone at Night)” I cannot choose one song. I love all of my work, and it's always the latest piece I'm working on that I love the most, until it is finished. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? I was recently selected for the Universal Edition Composition Mentoring Program with composer David Moliner. During the program, I will compose a new piece, which Mr. Moliner will premiere in Vienna at the Musikverein in early 2025. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I just want to keep composing, and have my music heard and played. I have more I want to say, and want to continually express gratitude for J.S. Bach and his music through my own, and for other great classical composers more generally.
