The Brass Section of the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia performed within the framework of the Khachaturian Festival

 

On October 28 the Brass Section and Brass Quintet of the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia performed within the framework of the Khachaturian Festival at Komitas Chamber Music House.

Armen Karagyan (French horn), Tigran Avagyan (trumpet), Levon Puchinyan (trumpet), Vahram Davtyan (trombone), Harutyun Hajhinyan (tuba) are members of the Brass Quintet. The Brass Section performed during the 1st part of the concert. The presented works were arranged by the order of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and published by the European publishers. The above mentioned pieces were performed in Armenia for the first time.

During the 2nd part of the concert the Brass Quintet presented various pieces by Western European and American composers, which were also presented in Armenia for the first time.

Trombonist Vahram Davtyan noticed that together with his colleagues he had intended to perform as a Brass Quintet long before this concert, but the tight schedule and involvement in various projects left no possibilities to realize the idea. "This concert was just a start, and we hope that in the future we will perform often enough",- Vahram Davtyan says.

4th Khachaturian International Festival is held under the patronage of the President of RA Serzh Sargsyan. It is held thanks to the joint efforts of the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia (General Partner of the Orchestra - VivaCell-MTS) and the "Classical Music Support" NGO, with the support of the Ministry of Culture of RA, the "Khachaturian" Foundation and the European Foundation for Support of Culture.
