Azerbaijan music site: Asaf Zeynalabdin oglu Zeynalli. Born 1909, Derbent : died 1932, Baku. Azerbaijan composer and teacher.

Initailly started at a local school, where he became a member of the school choir and was taught the clarinet, aften participating in the local brass band . In 1920 his family moved to Baku, and he continued his education at a military school where he learnt to play the trumpet.

In 1923, Zeynally enrolled in the newly established musical college in Baku, where he studied with Uzeyir Hajibeyov. While studying at the college, he composed his first work entitled Mahni ‘The Song’ and performed it on his trumpet, whoch aroused interest by local music experts, encouraged by Hajibeyov, Zeynally enrolled in the composer program at the Azerbaijan State Conservatoire upon graduating from the musical college in 1926.

Along with writing music, Zeynally also wrote and published articles on Azeri musical culture, in which he mainly developed Hajibeyov's method of merging traditional Azeri styles with Western European classical music. In the early 1930s, he was among members who opposed the goal of the Soviet authorities to ban the tar, a stringed instrument, much used in Azerbaijan music.

From 1928, Zeynally taught at the music school linked to the conservatoire – his students included Karayev, Hajiyev and Guliyev. 1929 became the peak of the composer's activity and among his works produced that year was the romance Olkam ‘My Country’, a children's suite, Garabagh shikastasi for orchestra, and azerbaijan folk songs arranged for western instruments. In 1931, he graduated from the Conservatoire and was appointed head of the Department of Music of the Baku Turkic Labour Theatre. During that employment he wrote the music for the controversial propaganda play Sevil which toured St Petersburg successfully.

Zeynalli died in 1932 from typhus, at the age of 23.

NOTE: I am struggling to post scores to Pianophilia - seems to be a problem at my end but larger files continue to crash. I will hopefully be able to post smaller piano and chamber pieces where I can, but larger files (mainly two piano, larger chamber and orchestral works) will have to wait until the matter is resolved.

Unfortunately owing to my pc issues and the size of this file, I can not post on Pianophilia - however, all of the pieces have been shared on Pianophilia previous, but just nice to have them in one album. If you would like a copy then e-mail me on: malcolm.ballan@gmail.com - and I'll send you a copy (the same goes for any scores I'm struggling to post at the moment).

Piano Album (Soviet Composer 1985)
1. Twelve Children Pictures
2. Twelve Miniatures
3. Lyrical Piece
4. Two Impromptus
5. Two Preludes
6. Variations.
