NAGHASH “Songs of Wisdom”

21.01.2022 @ 19:00 - 21:00

On January 21, 2022 at 19:00 The Naghash Ensemble will present new music by John Hodian at “Arno Babajanyan” Concert Hall.
The program will feature “Songs of Wisdom,” a collection of new compositions based on 13th-century Armenian poet Kostandin Erznkaci as well as pieces from “Songs of Exile”.
The Naghash Ensemble’s concerts have been described as “a deeply moving mix of Armenian folk and spiritual music with new classical music” by Germany’s most prominent classical music radio station, BR Klassik, and as “a moment of grace and meditation” by Rolling Stone. Or as the French Trans Musicales summarises: “The spiritual beauty of the music provokes a mix of joy and ecstasy.”
Music by John Hodian
Texts by Kostandin Erznkaci (13th century) & Mkrtich Naghash (15th century)
