CD release “… back to the roots: Armenian Classic”
Just in time for Christmas 2013, “Bayer Records” announces the release of a new CD with Ruben Gazarian, the pianist Vardan Mamikonian and the Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn. Titled Ruben Gazarian …back to the roots: Armenian Classic, the recording departs from standard symphonic repertoire to explore the music of Gazarian’s homeland. The composers Eduard Mirzoyan, Tigran Mansurjan, Aram Khachaturian and Arno Babajanian represent 20th century Armenian music at its finest. The CD includes the world premiere recording of Tigran Mansurjan’s “Fantasy” for Piano and Orchestra.
