Nareh Arghamanyan has accepted Aznavour’s proposal to perform songs devoted to Armenian Genocide in Geneva next year

Armenian pianist Nareh Arghamanyan will give a concert in Geneva at the invitation of world famous singer Charles Aznavour next year. The talented pianist will perform at the UN House in Geneva on February 5, 2015.

“I’ll mainly be performing Armenian songs and songs that are devoted to the Armenian Genocide. Charles Aznavour will also be attending the concert,” Nareh Arghamanyan said in an interview with “ArmenPress”.

The pianist will also give concerts in other countries ahead of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide.

Arghamanyan has already given several concerts devoted to the Armenian Genocide in a number of cities across Switzerland.

“Recently I felt that the Swiss audience is quite interested in Armenian music and Armenian composers. I’ve started performing the works of Khachaturian more often, especially his Concerto for the Piano. In this concert season I have performed Khachaturian’s Concerto 78 times with different orchestras. Many Europeans get emotional when they listen to Armenian music. Many Europeans who hadn’t heard Armenian music would approach me and tell me they had never heard such music,” the pianist mentioned.

Nareh Arghamanyan added that the pianist will also be performing with violinist Sergey Khachatryan, cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan and singer Hasmik Papyan at a concert dedicated to the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide in Vienna next year. That same concert will also be held in Prague.

Pianist Nareh Arghamanyan was born in 1989 and started playing the piano when she was 5 years old. She studied at the Tchaikovsky Music School in Yerevan. In 2004, at the age of 15, she became one of the youngest students of the University for Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. She has performed with several famous orchestras and is a recipient of several international awards.
