FROM YEREVAN TO CLEVELAND: NARA AVETISYAN’S SOLO CONCERT IN ARMENIA
Public Radio of Armenia
Young pianist Nara Avetisyan gave a concert at the Aram Khachaturian
Hall. The program featured works by Mozart, List, Granados and
Schumann. First Lady Rita Sargsyan, a number of renowned artists were
present at the concert.
Nara Avetisyan, 22, was destined to become an artist, not because
she was born and raised in the family of artists, but because of her
innate talent. Aged 22, she’s a laureate of different international
competitions. Nara was seven, when she received her first prize.
Naira Avetisyan began her first steps as a pianist at Spendiaryan and
Chaykovski Schools, and then continued her education at the Komitas
Conservatory. Since 2011 she has been studying at the Cleveland
Institute of Music.
Having performed in many countries of the world, Nara was particularly
excited about the concert in Yerevan. “Playing in Armenia is a great
responsibility, because people here have been following my growth
since childhood,” she said.
The standing ovations after the concert were the best reward and
the best proof of success. The young pianist’s mother Mrs. Ruzanna
was perhaps more excited than Nara herself. “I have mixed feelings;
I’m both proud and glad. I see the work has not been in vain, and
the path she has chosen is correct. What’s the most joyous is that
I think this is only the beginning,” she said.
