The Gurdjieff Ensemble - Komitas, Bartók, Gurdjieff
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Exerting a similarly pronounced influence as Bartók and Kodály did in the 20th-century movements renewing Western classical music based on folk music foundations were the Armenian composer Komitas and the Armenian-Greek philosopher and composer George Gurdjieff. It is after the latter that The Gurdjieff Ensemble, a group founded by Levon Eskenian to play music on traditional Armenian instruments, is named. At Müpa Budapest, they will play for the first time Bartók's folk music collections, drawing a parallel between them and pieces Komitas based on folk music collections.
