"Fikret Amirov" published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of People's Artist Fikret Amirov.
The presentation ceremony of the book "Bibliography" and Fikret Amirov's "Six Pieces for Oboe and Piano" was held.
APA reports that representatives of the Ministry of Culture, prominent musicologists and artists took part in the presentation ceremony.
People's artist Eldar Mansurov spoke about Fikret Amirov's contributions to Azerbaijani music: "There was no one who did not know him in Azerbaijan. Even now, he lives and is known. Fikret Amirov is one of those artists who is always remembered outside of Azerbaijan and lives with music."
Zemfira Gafarova, secretary of the Union of Composers, spoke about the innovative features of Fikret Amirov: "All genres of Fikret Amirov's creativity are distinguished by their uniqueness. We have many outstanding composers. But there are few geniuses. The genius was Uzeyir Hajibeyov, and after him Fikret Amirov and Gara Garayev give the right to this name. Because these people are their own they created their own ways and styles".
Later, the participants of the event shared their opinions about Fikret Amirov's creativity and the published book and collection.
It should be noted that the book and collection were published under the "Prominent Personalities of Azerbaijan" series. This series is a joint project of the Ministry of Culture and the National Library.
