Alexander Arutunian

born: 23 September 1920
died: 28 March 2012
country: Armenia

Alexander Harutyunyan, a famous Armenian composer, graduated from the Yerevan Conservatory’s piano and composition department. Since 1962, he has held a professorship at the Yerevan State Conservatory. He has been honoured several times as one of Soviet prominent composers and is the recipient of the National Academy’s superior award-golden medal.

Many share the opinion that Harutyunyan is the successor to the tradition laid down by Komitas Vardapet to present Armenian music to a wider international audience, and he has become hugely popular in his homeland with works such as his Great Symphony, the opera Sajat-Nova and many instrumental concertos.
