Polka “Nora” is dedicated to Nora Novik, wonderful Latvian pianist.
I fortuned to work together with incomparable piano duet of Nora Novik and Raffi Haradzhanyan. This fine reminiscence evoked me to resort to this genre.
Raffi was accepted as some manly, while Nora’s character of a lady-pianist revealed in brilliant fine technique glimmering hints and jolly charm. Polka “Nora” is based on these impressions.
It’s a pity, the polka is undergoing its first publication , but without Nora, although it was included to the concerts since 1992, having been performed by Nora Novik, Raffi Haradzhanyan, Vadim Palmov and Vadim Bibergan.
