Essentially a creative setting of traditional sacred Armenian songs, Mansurian’s Taghs are a sincere meeting of contemporary artistry and folk tradition. Written for Armenian-American violist Kim Kashkashian and percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky, they are the first in Mansurian’s collection of pieces for viola and percussion, Lied und Gebilde, which range in style from traditional transcriptions to contemporary compositions.
