Program Notes

The beauty and richness of Armenian folk music comes alive in the skilled hands of Alfred Reed. At times it's haunting with a touch of nostalgia, at others brimming with the excitement of a life well lived. Better bands looking for a composition to stretch their lyrical abilities will want this in their library.
