Today is the day of remembrance of world-famous Armenian priest, composer, choir leader, singer, music ethnologist, music pedagogue and musicologist Komitas.
In his short but meaningful life, the great musician and Armenian witnessed many tragedies, which left its mark in the life of the great Armenian.
The horrors of the Genocide left an indelible mark on his mental world. Komitas was separated from the outside world, locked in gloomy and heavy thoughts․
In 1916 the composer’s health condition worsened and he was taken to a psychiatric hospital. But there was no hope of recovery.
On October 22, 1935, the life of the great Komitas was interrupted. In the spring of 1936, his body was moved to Armenia and buried in the Pantheon of Cultural Figures in Yerevan.
