Dedicated to the 100th Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, 'My Armenia' offers a very personal, touching and brilliant tribute to Armenian music by Sergey and Lusine Khachatryan.

Sergey and Lusine are regular duo partners. Together, they have given recitals at London's Wigmore Hall, Konzerthaus Dortmund, Paris Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Madrid Auditori Nacional, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Brussels Bozar, Luxemburg Philharmonie and New York Carnegie Hall.

'My Armenia' offers a large and heart-stretching overview of the finest Armenian composers, especially those who have successfully mixed Western Europe and folk influences, such as Komitas and Khachaturian.


It’s easy to agree with Debussy, who once declared on the basis of a single song that Komitas deserved to be recognised as a great composer. The Khachatryans eagerly embrace Komitas’s voice, by turns white-hot and icy cold. But perhaps the main achievement of this disc is the way it profiles a melting-pot of influences through the works of just five composers. Hannah Nepil
