A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A psychiatrist looks into the tortured psyche of Komitas, the great compiler and arranger of Armenian folk music. After surviving a death camp, Komitas developed a severe form of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, and spent twenty years in virtual silence in mental asylums.

From the Inside Flap:

Two great strands of human life are interwoven in the Armenian psyche: suffering and art. Komitas's life combines both to create a tragic yet delightful tapestry of an artist's life.

Born in Kütahya, Turkey, in 1869, Komitas rose from orphan street urchin to prominence as an internationally recognized musicologist. He popularized Armenian classical music by organizing mixed choirs in many cities with large Armenian populations. Komitas was idolized by the members of the choirs, who came to see him as the savior of their musical heritage.

His quest was to rediscover the pre-Christian roots of Armenian ecclesiastic music, to bring high standards to performances of Armenian folk music, and to build a conservatory of music to promote musical education. His melancholic songs exert a profound healing effect on listeners and draw audiences, Armenian and non-Armenian alike, to their feet.

Komitas, the founder of Armenian classical music, became a symbol of the Armenian suffering of the 1915 genocide in Turkey. He was elevated in the eyes of Armenians to martyrdom.
