|Djivan Gasparyan to Perform in Ankara
World famous pipe player, Djivan Gasparyan, will perform at the Middle
Eastern Technical University (ODTU) tonight.
His work includes contributions to the scores of 'Gladiator', 'Call
to Sin' and 'Dead Man Walking.'
Djivan Gasparyan arranged a press meeting before the concert.
"This is the first time I have visited Ankara," Gasparyan said
during a press conference. "Before coming here however, I heard many
things... Ankara is a city of universities and a city that shows
interest in this kind of music. The concert which I will give in
Ankara will be different from the concerts I have given in other
parts of the world,"
He commented that his reception in Turkey was unexpectedly warm. Born
in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia in 1934, Gasparyan has worked
with Armenian musicians for 50 years. Gasparyan is also a professor
in the Yerevan State Conservatory.
