Dear friends, by purchasing tickets, you agree to сomply with our rules for concertgoers.

Duduk is an extraordinary instrument, it belongs to Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, according to UNESCO. Thus any concert featuring the duduk is a unique event. What do we perceive in its voice? A remote roar of ancient times or the gentle soul of an apricot tree used for making the duduk in Armenia, by tradition?
However the unusual duduk is a very friendly instrument, it perfectly fits in with various musical styles. This concert is a splendid example of artistic collaboration. The East-West Trio (duduk, voice and organ) presents a wide range of style mix: exclusive arrangements of sacred, secular and folk masterpieces.
