KANON: The Life of Composer Ara Sevanian
By Eva Bogaardt
American-Armenian composer Ara Sevanian's dedication to a distinctly contemporary sound has built a bridge between Eastern and Western musical motifs. His "Hejaz" takes Russia by storm, "Protest" impresses Nazi Europe, and his "Adagio Cantabile" stuns America. Amid war, Genocide, and the struggle to survive in his adopted country, the composer manages to give new music to his audience. Comes with CD.
