The band performed during youth parties in Yerevan, toured around the Soviet Union and participated in All-Union jazz festivals.

Intriguingly this disc documents three violin concertos all of which are noted in tonality. Within that broad highway the Vasks is the most original and prone to use of avant-garde technique, the Arutiunian is most emotionally ordered and controlled and the Bronner unashamed of heart worn on the sleeve.

Levon Abrahamyan celebrated the 50th Anniversary of his organist carrier by recording this album with music from Armenian Divine Liturgy arranged for organ only.
Levon Abrahamyan was born in a family of Armenian emigrants in the city of Cairo, Egypt in 1941. He grew up in a family of musicians, where he learned about the beauty of music. He was surrounded by Sunday home concerts of classical music performed by family members and their friends. This environment influenced him to love music and start playing piano at the age of five. At the age of 15, he was hired as a principal organist, at Mother Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia, and continued his dedicated work at St. Karapet Church in Hollywood, United States…

Levon Eskenian formed his ensemble in 2008 to explore the inspirational sources of Gurdjieff’s music. The group’s debut album, Music of Georges I. Gurdjieff, issued by ECM in 2011, was a history-making project, drawing new attention to Gurdjieff’s compositions in his native Armenia and around the world, and winning prizes for its imaginative recasting of the music for traditional folk instruments. Now Eskenian and his musicians turn their attention to the music of Komitas Vardapet (1869-1935). Composer, ethnomusicologist, arranger, singer and priest, Komitas is popularly held to be the founder of contemporary music in Armenia, and in his work as a collector he explored the connections that uniquely bind together Armenian sacred and secular music. With their special focus on folk instrumentation and inspired arrangements the Ensemble illuminates the deep roots of Komitas’s compositions in this programme recorded in Lugano in February 2015.
