The collection “Eternal Signatures”

  • Project

The collection “Eternal Signatures”, comprised of notes of works by eminent representatives of the Azerbaijani composer’s school, prepared by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, was presented in the framework of the Kharybulbul Festival held in Shusha on 12-13 May, 2021.


The collection contains notes of works by 6 eminent representatives of the Azerbaijani composer’s school - Asef Zeynally, Jovdat Hajiyev, Fikret Amirov, Gara Garayev, Niyazi, and Vasif Adygoezalov.


71 journals containing Works of 6 composers were printed in the framework of the Project, which started to be implemented in 2019. Moreover, the collection includes also 12 notes’ folders. These folders contain notes of solo parties for various instruments of some symphonic and chamber-instrumental works.


Among the works printed in the collection are also samples that are published for the first time. Although notes of some works had been printed in the Soviet era, most of these publications had serious errors in them. These errors were edited with participation of a professional team attracted to the project. Notes of works were searched and found in archives of Azerbaijan and other countries, and, having conducted comparisons with manuscripts of the authors with participation of their successors, correct notes were chosen and printed anew.
