Coro della Chiesa Armena dei Santi Quaranta Martiri with Ani Martirosyan at the piano. Syuzanna Hakobyan, Ani Balian, mezzosoprano NUR Project Rosy Anoush Svazlian, voice Andrea Manzoni, piano The tradition of Armenian liturgical chants is as old as the Armenian Church itself, which was founded at the beginning of the fourth century A.D. The chants are based on the ochtoechoi modal system and unmistakable standard melodies. Over the centuries, Armenian culture, in its specificity, became a sort of bridge between East and West as it became more westernized. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. This performance takes us from traditional music to the innovation and creative impulse born during the subsequent diaspora. In memory of the Armenian Genocide in 1915
