Synopsis

Album Description
Hagopian is a virtuoso on the ?ud (oud), a principal instrument of Armenian, Turkish, and Arab musical traditions. Included in his repertory are both Armenian classical and folk styles, which in the U.S. have received little exposure outside of the Armenian community. This National Heritage Fellowship award winner and his small ensemble perform 13 brilliant selections. "Serenity and dignity on first hearing.... Behind that veil, however...tension and passion smoulder in the deep." ?Wereldmuziek Update

Armenian Oud Colossus
Sumatriptan | Fixing a barbecue at the Golden Gate Park, San Fra | 04/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Richard Hagopian is one of the world foremost oud players along with Munir Bashir from Iraq, Simon Shaheen from Palestine, Rabih-Abou Khalil from Lebanon, Anouar Brahem from Tunisia and another great Armenian master from Turkey - Udi Hrant Kelkulian. This album is an excellent collection of Armenian folk songs and it will add a great deal to any CD collection of folk music. Favourite track - YARIMO."
