World Choir Games 2018

"Treasures of Music: Armenia" album is ready!

  • It was a very long and difficult project, but the effect is worth its effort! The album "Treasures of Music: Armenia" contains 26 works with the Armenian repertoire performed by 14 choirs from Poland, Armenia, Ukraine, Germany and Moldova.

     

    bookletThey are mostly folk pieces, arranged or composed by the famous Armenian composer and musicologist Komitas, but also contemporary compositions by young authors. Among the performers were both large choirs and vocal ensembles, with age ranging from children, through youth to adults.

    This album is a result of an open project announced by the International Choral Portal Chórtownia and coordinated by armenian Choral Conductors' Association - each choir could take part in it by recording any Armenian song and sending it to the organizers. In return for recordings, the choirs would receive part of the stock for promotional purposes (the album is not for sale). Thus, we expect an immediate distribution among interested people ;)

    All participants of the project are almost 500 people, performing beautiful music at a very good level. Each song was recorded in different place and by other producers, so here we have real pot-pourri, not only musical but also geographic. Poland is represented on this album by the Mixed Choir Klaster from Zabrze under the direction of Barbara Gajek-Kraska and the Chamber Choir "Lege Artis" from Cracow under the direction of Agnieszka Trela-Jochymek. There is also the Choir of the Music School named after P. Stolarski from Odessa (conductor - Tatiana Yakovchuk) and Vocal Ensemble "Mravalzhamieri" at the Choral Studio Rhapsody from Chisinau (conductor - Natalia Barabanscicova), as well as the Shogher Choir from German Munich (conductor - Armine Babayan). We pay tribute to all participants from outside Armenia for mastering the repertoire in Armenian language - it's not the same as singing in Latin, English or Russian;)
