Notes and Editorial Reviews

Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian is internationally recognized for her shimmering voice and her accomplishments on the stage and the screen. For her newest project, she has chosen to create a hypnotic album of Armenian sacred music, beautifully displaying a spiritual aspect of her musical persona. This project was conceived by Bayrakdarian as a gift to God for sparing the life of her mother. The whole album is a family affair- her husband arranged the works, her brother plays ceremonial percussion, and her two sisters join her to form a vocal trio on several of the tracks. “The evening really belonged to Bayrakdarian, the satin beauty, whose voice carried all before it. No, that doesn’t say it all: Her voice is one of the most engaging and Read more congenial in the world today.” (Ottawa Citizen) Read less
