Cal Performances

Robert Mlkeyan, director Thirty-five voices strong, the Armenian State Chamber Choir sings repertoire from the choral canon by Gabrielli, Bach, Brahms, and Schnittke, as well as contemporary works by Armenian composers that address the turbulent and often tragic history of the Armenian people. The choir has recorded folk songs by the martyred priest and ethnomusicologist Komitas; and its recording on ECM of Tigran Mansurian's Ars Poetica was praised for its superb ensemble cohesion and blend: "gorgeous, emotive, and very deeply felt a cappella choral music...fully the product of inspiration" (All Music Guide).
