Notes and Editorial Reviews

Tigran Mansurian has created a Requiem dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide that occurred in Turkey from 1915 to 1917. It reconciles the sound and sensibility of his country s traditions with the Latin Requiem text in a profoundly moving contemporary composition, illuminated by the glow of Armenian modality, as Paul Griffiths puts it in his booklet essay. The work is a milestone for Mansurian, widely acknowledged as Armenia s greatest composer. The Los Angeles Times has described his music as that in which deep cultural pain is quieted through an eerily calm, heart-wrenching beauty.
