Kariné Poghosyan to Honor Aram Khachaturian

(NEW YORK, NY) --  There such a sense of joy, even ecstasy as she plays." This is how NY1's Stephanie Simon describes the Armenian-American concert pianist Kariné Poghosyan's performances.

Praised for her "Bewitching Detail and Thunderous Power" (New York Music Daily), the award-winning powerhouse pianist will present a one-night-only tribute to her beloved compatriot Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978), in honor of the composer's 120th Anniversary this year.

The concert will take place at the beautiful Cary Hall at the DiMenna Center on 450 West 37th Street, on Wednesday, June 7, at 9:00pm. The concert is presented by the Permanent Mission of Republic of Armenia to the UN.

The concise 45-minute program is comprised of two solo works - the vivacious Toccata and the Ms. Poghosyan's own solo transcription of the delicate Lullaby from the ballet Gayaneh. The grand event of the evening will be the performance Khachaturian's iconic Piano Concerto in D-flat Major, for which Ms. Poghosyan will be joined by her long-time colleague, Maestro Jason Tramm and the MidAtlantic Philharmonic Orchestra.

Tickets are $55.52 and available for purchase online.

Award-winning Armenian-American pianist, Kariné Poghosyan, has been praised on the world stage for her "ability to get to the heart of the works she performs." Since her orchestral debut at the age of fourteen, Kariné has been enchanting concert audiences around the globe, with her masterful artistry and exceptional performances that leave them forever transformed.

Kariné's most recent concerts include 3 sold-out recitals at Carnegie Hall, one of which was a CD Release concert of her "Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky" recording on Centaur Records. This recording garnered rave reviews, with Gramophone Magazine praising its "masterly textural layering and resounding climaxes," and the American Record Guide stating that "a more heroic program would be hard to find, and few could play as well as the Armenian-American Poghosyan." She was also featured in WQXR's "Chopin Marathon" concert and live webcast, and was interviewed by David Osenberg on his award-winning program on WWFM, Cadenza.

The renown pianist and WWFM radio host Jed Distler described her performance in the following way, "This is big piano playing, but big in the sense of being in the moment, being present, and totally owning her vitality and imagination." Oscar-winning screenwriter Alex Dinelaris said, "Listening to and watching Kariné Poghosyan play fills one with life and energy. The combination of her formidable skill and her unchecked passion is an experience I recommend for anyone who needs to be reminded of the artist and art within themselves."

In February 2023, Ms. Poghosyan released her third album Folk Themes on Parma Recordings' classical label Navona Records, available now on Amazon, AppleMusic, Spotify, and other platforms.
