The Armenian Genocide (1915-1916) took place in Turkey during the First World War. Two-thirds of the Armenian population died in deportation, from famine and massacres planned by the Ottoman empire, with more than 1.2 million victims. The 24th of April has been designated as the commemoration day of this crime against humanity.
The music expressing the voice of the Armenian people and its multi-millennial history will be interpreted in the Royal Chapel. Its capital Erevan, one of the oldest cities in the world, was founded in 782 BC and, in the 4th century, Armenia became one of the first Christian kingdoms. After many trials and tribulations, the Armenians are today a global people with a living culture. Four virtuoso artists will interpret the magnificent “classical music” of Armenia, joining memory and will to live in a powerful symbolic moment.
