Tagharan

The Tagharan program is dedicated to the spiritual and folk branches of Armenian music. At the heart of the creation of the program is the idea of kinship of these two branches, which was first scientifically dealt with by Komitas. In the episodes of the program, we consider the relationship between Armenian folk and sacred music branches, present the stages of their historical development and their genre manifestations, describe the music component of folk and Church rites, reflect on the most important works of Church singing art as well as discuss actual problems of Armenian medieval studies and folklore with specialists.

08 January Relationship Between Armenian Spiritual and Folk Music

The fact that Armenian spiritual music was formed on the basis of the Armenian folk music culture was first substantiated by Komitas, who compared the ties between these two branches with the relationship between sister and brother. This proposition of Komitas was reaffirmed by the Armenian musicologists of later generations. However, the problem of the relationship between these two music branches still has many aspects that need to be studied. We're talking on this topic with musicologist and medievalist, researcher at the Komitas Museum-Institute Lilit Harutyunyan.
