GLENDALE — The Dilijan Chamber Music Series welcomes two renowned musicians (and new Angelenos) in their Series’ debut at the February 23rd concert at Zipper Hall. Former cellist of the great Tokyo Quartet and currently distinguished Colburn School faculty, cellist Clive Greensmith and the newly appointed Professor of Piano at UCLA Inna Faliks are joined by Dilijan favorites violist Paul Coletti, violinist Varty Manouelian, and Artistic Director Movses Pogossian. The Program includes the World premiere of a Violin Sonata by Vartan Adjemian (Dilijan’s 25th commission), and two masterpieces of the romantic repertoire: Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in A minor, Op.13 no.2, and Robert Schumann’s magical Trio No. 1 in D minor.

The current season of the Dilijan Series is dedicated to the 75th birthday anniversary of Armenia’s foremost composer Tigran Mansurian, renowned around the world through the extensive catalog of award winning recordings on the ECM label. Continuing its mission of bringing new works to life, the Dilijan Series will present three world premieres from Paul Chihara, Artashes Kartalyan, and Vartan Adjemian, bringing the total of its commissions to 26. Among the distinguished instrumentalists appearing this season are clarinetist Michele Zukovsky, guitarist David Starobin, violinist Guillaume Sutre, violists Carrie Dennis and Richard O’Neill, cellists Clive Greensmith, Ronald Leonard, Robert deMaine, pianists Svetlana Navassardian and Inna Faliks, and many other artists of international acclaim.
