The Crane | Music from Armenia

November 14, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

A rare opportunity to hear folk, sacred, and art music by Armenian composers, performed by Armenian Canadian pianist Eve Egoyan and violinist Gascia Ouzounian. Arno Babajanian’s dazzling modernist sonata is presented alongside much-beloved works by Soviet Armenian composer Aram Khatchaturian, and sacred and folk music set by Komitas, an Armenian priest and ethnomusicologist who is widely considered the ‘saviour’ of Armenian music.
