* 28 May 1947 Baku
"Every time music helped me and took away the problems of life....every time when I compose music I feel so much stronger, more creative."
„My message to the young people: Music is the best what God gave us in our life. If you play music, if you compose music, you are a really lucky person in life!“
Among compositions for many different instruments, including folk music instruments from Azerbeidjan, Franghis Ali-Zadeh also has written music for piano and for prepared piano, songs, piano chamber music and two piano concertos (if we include the "IMPROMPTU-CROSSINGS" for prepared piano, five azerbaidzhani folk instruments and chamber orchestra to this genre).
