Notes and Editorial Reviews

Tigran Mansurian is without doubt the foremost composer of today's Armenia. His style is embedded in impressionism infused with folkloristic Armenian elements, and follows the minimalistic and spiritual line of fellow composers Arvo Part, Schnittke, Silvestrov. His music has many strong advocates in musicians like Leonidas Kavakos, Natialia Gutman, Jan Garbarek, Alexei Lubimov and Patricia Kopachinskaya. The cult label ECM regularly issues his new works. This new recording by Armenian mezzo-soprano Mariam Sarkissian features song cycles in chamber music and orchestral settings, hauntingly beautiful songs on texts by Armenian poets. The moving ''Agnus Dei'' for clarinet, piano, violin and cello is written in memoriam of Oleg Kagan. Mariam Read more Sarkissian already received wonderful reviews of her previous album for Brilliant Classics of songs by Armenian composers Melikian, Avenesov and Mansurian. Read less
