Double CD Set. We proudly announce the release of a double-volume CD of songs by the Diva of Armenian Folk Music, the legendary Ophelia Hambartsumian. The album includes a collection of the best recordings of her career, and is appropriately named “Armenian Folk Treasury.” The rich repertoire, the poignant interpretations, and the lavish artwork make this CD a treasure in itself. Ms. Hambartsumian needs no introduction: she has enjoyed great renown and has contributed immensely to the popularity of folk music over the years. A pillar of Armenian music and culture, Hambartsumian has shared her passionate performances with a wide audience, in the homeland and around the world. “The Queen of Armenian Folk Song”, “The Messenger of Armenian Folk Song”, “Singer of the Soul”... these are some of the titles that Armenians all over the world have bestowed upon an artist seen as an interpreter of the Armenian soul. Her work has been discussed at length, and appraised only by the highest standards, compared only with the greatest. Hambartsumian is considered the quintessential Armenian female vocalist, and her singing has kept its freshness, purity and sincerity throughout the years. Her secret: Ophelia pours her innermost feelings into folk songs that have been with her since childhood, and her repertoire is vast and diverse. The album includes songs by Sayat Nova, Sheram, Givani, Gousan Ashot, Havasi and some of the best contemporary composers recorded over the years. Each CD contains over 70 minutes of music. Every song is performed brilliantly-- a true reflection of the Armenian spirit, in all the sadness and joy, artistry and adventure of the people’s long history. This beautiful collection represents only a fraction of the numerous recordings with which Ophelia Hambartsumian has enriched the world of Armenian music. Her faithfulness to tradition, her resonance with the essence of the music, and the vividness with which she brings it to life, make her invaluable to the survival of Armenian song. She takes her listeners, Armenians and non-Armenians alike, on a journey back to their roots, hearts stirred and souls opened.
