A Fable is the fourth album by Tigran Hamasyan released in February 2011.[8][1][3][9] Tigran uses traditional Armenian hymns, Armenian poetry and Armenian folk music as the basis for the tracks on the album.[10][4][11] The album also draws influences from Jazz, Rock and Pop.[5][7] Tigran in an interview said that he chose the name of the album "... because each composition tells a story ... [and] people can relate to fables because they are both simple, yet deep."[3][11][7] He only used his first name on this album's release, but has used his full name in subsequent albums.[12]
