ArmInfo.The famous French tenor of Armenian descent Ruben Elbakyan presented a video dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Komitas. The video in which Komitas's work "Chinar es" sounds is already available on all social networks. This is the third video by the performer, which is based on Komitas music.
<This time I wanted to introduce our Great Komitas not as a mournful song, but as a lyrical piece like "Chinar es". I wanted to recreate the era in which Komitas lived, and the moment when he probably first heard this work. I'm glad that my son played the main role in the video'', the tenor said. On November 29, Ruben Elbakyan will give Ave Maria a large recital at the Madeleine Church in Paris, which will mark the beginning of a major European tour. It is worth noting that the tenor is also preparing for a solo concert in Armenia.
It should be noted that according to the authoritative edition LUXURY, Ruben Elbakyan is included in the list of 57 most famous Armenians of the world, along with Charles Aznavour, Henri Verno, Michel Legrand, Cher, Kirk Kirkoryan and others. This is the only Armenian performer, who was trusted three times to perform the French anthem.
