This is the second time, “Armenia” International Music Festival is being held in Yerevan. Though still very young, this music festival has reached a lot of success due to the experienced organizational board and the involvement of professional and talented musicians in it.
The opening concert of the “Armenia” International Music Festival took place on July 2. The Armenian State Symphony Orchestra and the soloist Denis Kozhukhin performed under the baton of Sergey Smbatyan. The program included the following works:
Grigor Yeghiazaryan - "Armenia" Symphonic Poem
Yervand Yerkanyan - "Mysteria" Symphonic Poem
Alexey Shor - "Travel Notebook" Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
The festival has got a rich program and is hosting talented musicians from different countries. On the second day of the festival, The Armenian State Symphony Orchestra and the soloist Nikolaj Znaider performed another interesting program including:
Vardan Adjemian - Festive Overture
Alexey Shor - Seascapes for Violin and Orchestra
Johannes Brahms - Violin Concerto
The July 4th concert was incredible featuring the famous soprano Anna Aglatova from Bolshoi Theater. Sergey Smbatyan conducted this concert. However, during the next two days of the “Armenia” International Music Festival, the famous conductor Alan Chircop will be directing the orchestra.
We do believe that music lovers will enjoy these five days dedicated to classical music. Good luck to all the musicians!
