How have the world great writers thought and which of their works have made them famous in the entire world, especially since the 1920s when serious changes occurred in the history of world literature?
The program "Selected Literary Works" not only presents the literary heritage and lives of foreign writers, but also tries to reveal the spirit and merits of their famous works.
The broadcast is dedicated to the French writer and musicologist, Nobel prize winner as well as public figure Romain Rolland. In 1914 no one was given the Nobel Prize for Literature. Only in 1915, this prize was awarded to Romain Rolland. He had a special attitude toward Armenian culture and music. On the occasion of the translation of his famous novel "Jean Christophe," he compared Armenia, in terms of music, with Italy in the letter-preface of the novel. At the Sorbonne, Rolland organized Komitas's lecture and concert, noting that the music of Komitas is deep, tragic and valiant, even in its reverie.
