Concert at ALMA on January 27 to Feature Works by Babajanian


WATERTOWN — The Armenian Library and Museum of America (ALMA) presents a concert by students of the Walnut Hill School for the Arts. The concert will take place on Sunday, January 27, at 4 p.m., in ALMA’s Contemporary Arts Gallery.

This collaboration between ALMA and the school includes the performance of a very special piece of Armenian chamber music, Arno Babajanian’s Piano Trio (written in 1952) which combines traditional Armenian melodies with rich Romantic textures, and serves as a musical testament to the feelings of nationalist identity of the Armenian people under Soviet domination. The chamber groups will also present Erwin Schulhoff’s Concertino for flute, viola and double bass, and Alexander Zemlinsky’s Trio for clarinet, cello and piano. Tickets will be available at the door. Admission free for students. Refreshments to be served following the program.
