Armenian Breath and Persian Song
I became like a cypress by the goodwill of the fortune
of the freedmen
That does not bow to anyone because my nature
SHAHRIYAR (trad. Reza Afchar Naderi)
Is it the deep Persian voice of Sahar Mohammadi that accompanies the languid breath of Haïg Sa-rikouyoumdjian's duduk? Or is it the finesse of the duduk that makes the Persian song and its recognizable glottal blows gloriously exult? It is difficult to say as this perfect combination takes us from melancholy to lament, from joy to sadness, in a perfect crossing over. The two melodies fly away to interface and combine the plains of the Caucasus with the eternal poetry of Persia. Once again, the young master of the Armenian duduk and one of the most beautiful voices of Iran will offer us a concert of great intimacy.
