Armenian Music in Lisbon - Calouste Gulbenkian Auditorium - The 14th of October 2014

I was fortunate enough to have been able to attend a magical one and a half hour chamber music evening event at the auditorium of Calouste Gulbenkian Museum during the cultural week of Armenia.
Having been to Armenia early this year and fallen for their culture further added to my curiosity and I was astounded, firstly with the amount of people who attended this event (the auditoirum was full) and secondly because of the virtuosity of the musicians who interpreted  major compositions  by well known Armenian composers from significantly different periods, Komitas, Arno Babajanian and Tigran Mansurian.
Despite having preferred the ones played by the Trio Aeternus, a classical piano trio formed by Alexander Steward (violin), Varoujan Bartikian (cello) and Lucjan Luc (piano) I must admit that all the musicians were outstandingly good.
