Robert Rozhdestvensky: It is senseless to write about Arno: One should listen to him… (video)

“It is senseless to write about him… One should listen to him… Listen to him when you are sad, listen to him when you are happy, always listen to him…” Soviet poet Robert Rozhdestvensky said about famous Armenian composer Arno Babajanyan.

Arno Babajanyan’s songs will be performed at the Aram Khachaturyan Concert Hall in Yerevan on January 25 with orchestral accompaniment Philharmonic Orchestra and a group of singers.

Stage Director Artur Sahakyan says it is ‘a master course’ for all singers to perform Babajanyan.

Razmik Amyan is glad to have been included in the concert program. He will perform one of his favourite childhood songs – The Beautiful Girl of Yerevan.

The conductor, Eduard Topchjan, says it is indeed a long-awaited concert, and the tickets were sold out two weeks ago.
