YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 12, ARMENPRESS: Makda Mkrtchian, a soloist of Yerevan Opera and Ballet Theater and Levon Javadian, a professor of Yerevan Conservatory are back home from a ten-day tour in Germany where they performed for audience in Berlin, Potsdam and Halle.
Makda Mkrtchian is an award-winner of several international contests. The four concerts in Germany’s most prestigious concert halls were organized by a German Armenian Tadevos Jorkntsian, who owns a concert agency.
“Before traveling to Germany we knew Tadevos Jorkntsian as a generous benefactor who donated hefty sums of money to help students of Yerevan Conservatory. He learned about Makda and me from our Internet website. He also knew about Luciano Pavarotti’s and Placido Domingo’s invitations sent to Makda,” professor Javadian told Armenpress.
Armenian musicians performed the works of Verdi, Luciano Berrio, Komitas, Pagannini, List, Ravelle and Schumann. The works by Komitas were welcomed by stormy applause.
The Armenian musicians are planning to organize in collaboration with Tadevos Jorkntsian’s agency a festival in Germany and Armenia dedicated to the 80-th anniversary of a prominent Armenian opera singer Katy Berberian.
