BRATISLAVA, JANUARY 10, NOYAN TAPAN – ARMENIANS TODAY. Concluding
concert of Days of Armenian Culture festival will take place on
January 11 at the big hall of Bratislava State Philharmony. Well-known
Armenian violinist Sergei Khachatrian will perform at the concert. He
will perform Aram Khachatrian’s Violin Concert with Slovakian State
Symphonic Orchestra.

As Noyan Tapan was informed by Ashot Grigorian, organizer of Days of
Armenian Culture festival, Chairman of representation of Armenian
Organizations of Europe and Slovakian Armenian community, this
Concert was last performed in Slovakia in 1999 within the framework
of Bratislava Music Festival by another talented Armenian violinist,
Jean Ter-Merkerian. Invitations of concerts of these two talented
violinists, Jean Ter-Merkerian and Sergei Khachatrian, were organized
by A.Grigorian, who has currently initiated reception of high-ranking
officials invited to S.Khachatrian’s concert at the hall of Ararat
club.

Slovakian Minister of Culture, First Deputy Minister, Bratislava Mayor,
under the aegis of which the festival was held, other officials have
expressed willingness to take part in the concert.

As A.Grigorian reported, more than a month before S.Khachatrian’s
concert all tickets have been already sent and the interest of
Slovakian music lovers was in its zenith by the performance of
the young Armenian violinist, who living in Germany more than ten
years retained citizenship of Armenia and performs under the flag of
Armenia. "Concerts with his participation became the greatest surprise
for the most authoritative halls of the world," A.Grigorian said.

To recap, Days of Armenian Culture festival started in Slovakia and
neighboring countries in September 2006. A number of concerts were
held within the framework of the festival, in particular, soloists of
Yerevan Al.Spendiarian National Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet,
soprano Lusine Ordukhanian and tenor Artak Kirakosian, Armenian State
Philharmony Orchestra and Komitas quartet performed at these concerts.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
