Born in Baku, Kara Karayev was one of Dmitry Shostakovichís most distinguished pupils. Karayev absorbed his teacherís influence, binding it to his own distinctive use of native Azerbaijani folk melodies and harmonies to produce music in an eclectic range of genres.

The Seven Beauties is the first full-length Azerbaijani ballet, and the suite heard here brims with an exotic array of appealing rhythms and melodies. The Path of Thunder uses elements of African and Afro-American music in its exploration of the theme of forbidden love in apartheidera South Africa.
