Armenian-born Karen Hakobyan will show two sides of his enviable musicianship on today’s program. First, we'll hear him perform solo piano works, recorded live in our studios. Then we’ll hear his own Symphony No. 2, performed by the Armenian Youth Orchestra.
Hakobyan is steadily collecting accolades as both pianist and composer, an impressive feat achieved at such a young age.
