Isabel Bayrakdarian out with new CD

I just got a hold of Isabel Bayrakdarian’s new CD “Gomidas Songs.” Simply fabulous interpretations of Armenian composer Komitas’ works. Here is a review from San Francisco Chronicle.

Gomidas’ songs – this CD includes 20 of them – encompass religious
chants, folk tunes, love songs and more, and although there is a
certain sameness to the structures, the variety of mood and melody is
broad enough to keep a listener’s attention. Certainly Bayrakdarian’s
singing, with its tender clarity and ripe urgency, gives these songs
the force they need.
