“The stately, spiritual music of Tigran Mansurian has an underlying sadness. But the surfaces remain unflappable, surprisingly fleshy and incredibly beautiful. It is music that doesn't so much transcend suffering as absorb it, become one with it.”

“Arghamanyan’s playing is compulsive, emotional yet remarkably ‘complete’ for such a young musician – sensitive, unaffected, genuine.”
