Michel Legrand to perform work on Genocide in Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Renowned composer, conductor, and pianist Michel Legrand of Armenian descent plans to give a concert in Armenia in 2013.

According to “Rostov official” paper, the composer doesn’t rule out Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra’s performance at the event.

“It’s not often I can visit my ancestral meeting,” Legrand said in Rostov-on-Don.

The composer further voiced readiness to perform his new composition dedicated to the Genocide victims in Armenia.

“The work may possibly be called “Requiem for Armenia”. What happened in Ottoman Empire in 1915 is horrible. At the beginning of the last century, part of Armenians fell victim to the Genocide, while others fell under the Communist regime,” Legrand said.
