Armen Donelian CD release April 27 Gt. Barrington, MA
“As a child, the sounds of Middle Eastern, European Classical and American Jazz records were continually present in our multicultural household. These three threads form the tapestry of Sayat-Nova: Songs Of My Ancestors. Integrating them into a single coherent work is the realization of my lifelong aspiration. Here, the quintessential and exquisite melodies of the 18th Century troubadour Sayat-Nova are respectfully preserved, then further transformed through an alchemy of contemporary Jazz harmony and polyrhythm, and finally polished with a Classical aesthetic. I am proud to present Sayat-Nova: Songs Of My Ancestors to a broader public.” – Armen Donelian
