GURDJIEFF FOLK INSTRUMENTS ENSEMBLE

The Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble was founded in 2008 by the Armenian musician Levon Eskenian, with the aim of creating ethnographically authentic arrangements of the G.I. Gurdjieff/Thomas de Hartmann piano music. The ensemble consists of Armenia’s leading Eastern folk instrumentalists.

Komitas Vardapet - forgotten folk hero

Michael Church, in The Guardian
For Armenians, music is memory. And whenever they gather to honour their dead, the songs they sing are by the composer who speaks for the soul of their nation, Komitas Vardapet. He himself was a victim of the 1915 persecution, and though he survived physically, he was driven into madness by it.
