"Treasures of Music: Armenia"

"Treasures of Music: Armenia" "Treasures of Music: Armenia" It was a very long and difficult project, but the effect is worth its effort! The album "Treasures of Music: Armenia" contains 26 works with the Armenian choral music performed by 14 choirs from Poland, Armenia, Ukraine, Germany and Moldova. They are mostly folk pieces, arranged or composed by the famous Armenian composer and musicologist Komitas, but also contemporary compositions by young authors. Among the performers were both large choirs and vocal ensembles, with age ranging from children, through youth to adults. This album is a result of an open project announced by the International Choral Portal Chórtownia - each choir could take part in it by recording any Armenian song and sending it to the organizers. In return for recordings, the choirs will receive part of the stock for promotional purposes (the album is not for sale). Thus, we expect an immediate distribution among interested people ;) All participants of the project are almost 500 people, performing beautiful music at a very good level. Each song was recorded in different place and by other producers, so here we have real pot-pourri, not only musical but also geographic. Poland is represented on this album by the Mixed Choir Klaster from Zabrze under the direction of Barbara Gajek-Kraska and the Chamber Choir "Lege Artis" from Cracow under the direction of Agnieszka Trela-Jochymek. There is also the Choir of the Music School named after P. Stolarski from Odessa (conductor - Tatiana Yakovchuk) and Vocal Ensemble "Mravalzhamieri" at the Choral Studio Rhapsody from Chisinau (conductor - Natalia Barabanscicova), as well as the Shogher Choir from German Munich (conductor - Armine Babayan). We pay tribute to all participants from outside Armenia for mastering the repertoire in a less popular language - it's not the same as singing in Latin, English or Russian;) The other choirs come from Armenia, mainly from Yerevan, but there is also a large children's choir - Tavush Children Choir under the direction of Christina Sheroyan, who, as part of the preparation of the song for this album, recorded a beautiful music video (link). Interestingly, on the recording you can hear the voice of the bishop of Tavush province, singing with children! There is also one piece of the Paros choir (conducted by Raffi Mikaelyan), known in the world, that most people with disabilities sing in it. The project was also attended by both young and promising and well-known conductors: Artashes Baburyan (Choir "Ave Maria"), Gor Melkumyan (ARAR Choir), Ani Navasardyan (KHAZER Choir), Mamikon Andreasyan (Choir of the Music School named after A Ter-Gevondyan), Gayane Sahakyan (KOMITAS Choir), Tatiana Minasyan (ARAHET Choir) and Arno Barkhudaryan (Art Vocal Ensemble). The project from the Armenian side was coordinated by the ACCA - Armenian Choral Conductors' Association. We also had a strong support of the Armenian Union in Poland, thanks to which it was possible to co-finance its issue from the funds of the Ministry of Interior and Administration. We also thank the sponsors: People to People Europe, the Diocesan Pilgrimage and Tourism Center ARKA from Siedlce and (attention, attention) to all those who supported the project during the crowdfunding campaign. All the choristers, conductors, record producers and hosts of the objects in which the songs were recorded - we would like to thank you for participating in the project and invite you to listen to the album. Mastering was made by Gabriela Blacha from StudioB1, and the record was produced by DigiRec from Gliwice, Poland. There is a possibility to obtain a free copy of the CD, but shipping costs should be covered. In this case please write to chortownia@3w.gliwice.pl.

Project for choirs from different countries willing to participate in a CD with Armenian national music We announce to all choirs a very exciting project named "Treasures of music: Armenia". With our partners: - Armenian Choral Conductors' Association and - Association of Armenians in Poland we want to issue a CD with Armenian national music performed by choirs from different countries. Maybe you remember The Sound of Europe II International Choral CD Project (2015) which included choral music from Poland, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria and Hungary, that turned out to be very interesting eventfor every participating choir and a modest contribution to understanding different cultures for people who were presented this CD. "Treasures of Music" is a variation of it, however conditions of participating are similar. We announce a contest in which the prize is to put winning choir recordings on this CD. We have already selected choirs from Armenia that will have their recordins on this CD, but we are looking for 4 choirs from outside Armenia who would like to take part in this project. We are waiting for 2 recordings from every interested choir in MP3 format to the end of 2016: pieces of Armenian national music choral arrangements - please send them through dropbox, other services to exchange large files or snail mail (I will give physical address to interested choirs). Submitted materials will not be returned or used for any other purpose than the recording of the disc. We will take under consideration the recording quality, the level of performance and repertoire. Winning recordings will be placed on the CD. To be in compliance with the law, we expect transfer of copyright to the relevant field of exploitation in the written form with the choir - the disks will be not for sale: neither organisers, nor choirs are supposed to sell them, only free distribution will be possible. We don't refund recording songs by choirs, only mastering and the whole production of the disc. The project will be funded by the Sponsor(s), whose name(s) will be given later. All selected choirs will have to pay a small fee, depending on how many disks they would like to get for their purposes, to cover part of production and shipping costs (100 euro for 50 CDs, 200 euro for 100 CDs etc). Money will be collected after final selection. There will be also a contest for a booklet graphic, that will be announced separately.
