Pianist & Composer


For forty years, pianist, composer and Fulbright Scholar Armen Donelian has distinguished himself as a performer, recording artist, educator and author.

In 25 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle and Far East, he has appeared since 1975 as a featured solo pianist, leader of his own quintet and trio, and with Jazz legends including Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, Paquito D’Rivera, Mongo Santamaria and Billy Harper.

Donelian’s distinctive music blends diverse influences including his Armenian origin, his Classical technique and his association with some of the biggest names in Jazz.

“He achieves this fusion in such a natural way that one can tell it’s a master’s work.” - Metronom
