The artistic director and principal conductor was Sergey Smbatyan.
Sergey Smbatyan stated that all the chamber and symphony music concerts held during the festival were significant and important for the Orchestra.
“Performing at this international festival is an achievement, and this must be enhanced. The achievements that have been made over the past six years are also due to the participation of internationally famous musicians who have come to Armenia to celebrate the successes of this festival with us.”
Playing Aram Khachaturian’s works is a great pleasure for Boris Berezovsky. “Aram Khachaturian is one of my most favorite composers. I perform his concerto for piano with great pleasure since the music is very brilliant and beautiful,” says Berezovsky.
Let us mention that 9 chamber and symphony music concerts were held during the festival dedicated to the 115th birth anniversary of Aram Khachaturian, and Aram Khachaturian’s music for films was performed as part of the “Khachaturian: Non-Stop” Program.
