In living memory of the great composer and a unique person
Lilit. K. Yepremyan
The article is an attempt to newly reconsider the role and the meaning of Edward Mirzoyan in the history of the Armenian music. Here we’ve underlined that he was always finding some extraordinary ways to get beyond the bounds of determinations (form, style, genre, tendency) combining the incompatible and creating new and original quality, which was becoming regularity for the generations. Some particular attention is paid also to the original world-view of Edward Mirzoyan during the formation of the movement of “sixties”. The universality of Komitas became the main and principal tradition of his art, which was also reflected for the first time in Armenian symphonic music.
