Mikael Ayrapetyan, Piano

Mikael Ayrapetyan is an Armenian pianist, composer, researcher and producer with a specific goal: to deliver hidden gems of the Armenian classical repertoire. In his Carnegie Hall debut, Ayrapetyan revives the forgotten names of composers by recording and performing world premieres of a treasury of Armenian music. Music in Armenia has a long and rich history, stretching back before the Middle Ages, with its origins in popular folksongs.
