YEREVAN (ArmRadio)—Aram Khachaturian’s legacy has been digitized thanks to the joint efforts of VivaCell MTS, the Armenian Ministry of Culture, the Public Radio of Armenia, and the Prolighting Company. A collection of 9 CDs, 1 DVD and a booklet has been created using recordings from the ArmRadio archives and materials provided by the Aram Khachaturian House-Museum.
The Public Radio of Armenia, in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, has been digitizing records since 2009. As a result, 65 CDs carrying invaluable cultural treasures have been created.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Executive Director of Public Radio of Armenia, Armen Amiryan, stressed the importance of this collaborative effort.
“These records are the product of our everyday work. When the Ministry of Culture shows interest and when the other organizations 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 enduring values continue to shine irrespective of times. Aram Khachaturian’s legacy is 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.
