Description: If you're interested in authentic Armenian folk music, you're in the right place since half of the 57 minutes on this disc are cello/piano transcriptions of songs collected by the founder of Armenian musicology, Komitas. The main rarity is the 22-minute sonata from 1943 by Stepanian who, trained in Moscow like most Armenian composers of his age, makes use of elements of his native country's folk music, weaving them into a Russian Romantic language. Heather Tuach (cello), Patil Harboyan (piano).
