Possibly one of the Three Preludes from 1954?

Alas no........I have that score and they are just a select of three preludes from the set of Six. The problem with these preludes is that different albums seem to post the odd selection from the six preludes. The only one I have not seem is a single prelude from 1966 (but even that might be from the six preludes, can't tell until I see a copy).

I take it you also checked the preludes from the Preludes & Fugues on Armenian Modes as well ?

I did check the 12 to no avail. It is possible that the video description is wrong but the piece does sport a rhythmic affectation that she seems to like.

There is a version for tar and piano on the Azerbaijan site and one for accordion on the ale07.ru site but I don't see a version for solo piano. Anyone knowing the origin of this piece please chime in.

Here's a recording on YouTube. The audio quality isn't the greatest.

Thanks Jim for the Alesgerov and the Chebotaryan (cleaner copy than what I'm holding).

The attached is quite a rarity by Chebotaryan - her Seven Pieces (~1985). A couple of pieces were available in one of the albums Caostatole kindly posted, but not the full work. Apologies, not a perfect scan as this work was taken from an album that was seriously dilapidated / damaged. Hope to post further works from this album in the next few days.
