Aram Khachaturian’s Legacy Now Digitised

Aram Khachaturyan

Aram Khachaturian’s legacy has been digitised thanks to joint efforts of VivaCEll MTS, the Armenian Ministry of Culture, the Public Radio of Armenia and the “Prolighting” Company. The collection of 9 CDs, 1 DVD and a booklet has been created on the basis of the records kept in the archive of the Public Radio and the materials provided by Aram Khachatiruan House-Museum.

The Public Radio of Armenia in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture has been digitising the records of the “Golden Fund” since 2009. As a result, 65 CDs including invaluable cultural values have been created. Speaking to reporters today, Executive Director of Public Radio of Armenia, Armen Amiryan, stressed the importance of this cooperation. “These records are the product of our everyday work. When the Ministry of Culture shows interest and when the other organisations combine efforts, they become the property of the whole art-loving community,” he said.

“Time moves forward… technologies develop, suggesting new solutions to the new generations, while the enduring values continue to shine irrespective of times. Aram Khachaturian’s legacy is one one of those values. We are proud to have contributed to this initiative,” VivaCell MTS Director General Ralph Yirikian said.

The events dedicated to Aram Khachaturian’s 110th birthday were among the most significant cultural events in 2013.
