This year we start to celebrate jubilees of the" Five," Trio's pianist, director of the Aram Khachaturian House-Museum Armine Grigoryan told ANM. "This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Alexander Harutyunyan and Lazar Saryan from legendary "Five", as well as Aram Khachaturian's nephew Karen Khachatryan's birthday. Parallelly we will play the works of Edward Mirzoyan, Adam Khudoyan, Arno Babajanyan, whose 100th anniversary will be celebrated next year. Trio's tour will be held with the support of Russian Philharmonies, the European Fund for Cultural Assistance and the ESCS Ministry. In the Baltic countries, in addition to the aforementioned authors, trio musicians will also perform works by Alexander Spendiaryan, as the 150th anniversary of the composer will also be celebrated at UNESCO level next year and this will be their first step towards that jubilee. “The concerts in the Baltic countries will be held with the support of the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia and under the patronage of Ambassador Tigran Mkrtchyan. I will be honored to perform there for the third time, but for the first time with the Trio." Works by Debussy, S Rachmaninoff, M From Ravel will also be performed within the tour. Concert tours dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the trio will continue until September. During this time the musicians will perform in European countries as well as in the US. “The geography of the trio's performances has grown tremendously over the years, we performed almost in every continent. The number of cities and the audience is large. There are concerts focused on the Armenian community, and the rest are for foreign audiences. I think it's very important for the Armenian musician to play and present the Armenian music to a foreign audience. It is part of our cultural policy. "
