Fine and polished musical twines will be presented by Yves Savary and Pierpaolo Maurizzi, foru masterpieces of the Armenian XX century repertoire. Starting with Karen Khačaturjan, neohew of the most famous Aram and son of Suran, the founder of The Armenian Drama Studio in Moscow. Karen studied at the Capital Conservatory together with Nikolaj Mjaskovskije and Dmitrij Šostakovič, i twill be fascinating to comapre his Sonata for cello and piano with the Op.40 of his Maestro. Šostakovič composed it 30 years before, in 1935, after having recieved a strict censorship by the Sovietic government, which conviced him to abandon the path of experimentation. Very interesting will be even to compare the Sonata in D minor by Debussy with Grave by Lutoslawski, the tombeau of 1981 dedicated to Stefan Jarocinski, Polish musicologist who consecreted the most part of his life to the study of Debussy.
