Gomidas Songs

Artist: Isabel Bayrakdarian

Producer: Nonsuch

Format: Audio CD


On Gomidas Songs, Isabel Bayrakdarian's first album for Nonesuch Records, the Armenian-Canadian soprano examines the legacy of Gomidas Vardabet (born Soghomon Soghomonian, Keotahia, Ottoman Empire, 1869), a well-traveled composer who made it his life’s work to seek out, transcribe, and re-interpret the ancient liturgy, songs, lullabies, hymns, and folk dances of his Armenian homeland. Bayrakdarian performed concerts that include Gomidas’s music following the album's release in the fall of 2008, including a date at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall.
