Tigran Mansurian has created a Requiem dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide that occurred in Turkey (1915-1917). It reconciles the sound and sensibility of his country’s traditions with the Latin Requiem text in a profoundly moving contemporary composition. The LA Times has described his music as that “in which deep cultural pain is quieted through an eerily calm, heart-wrenching beauty.”
