EMBASSY OF ARMENIA
2225 R STREET, NW
KARINÉ POGHOSYAN, PIANO

Kariné Poghosyan has performed in recitals at Carnegie’s Well Recital Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Steinway Hall, the Trinity Church Concerts at One series, the Beverly Hills Sundays at Two series, the Valley Committee for the LA Philharmonic, the Bach’s Lunch Recital Series in California, the Young Artists International Peninsula Festival in California, and the International Keyboard Institute and Festival in New York. In the fall of 2007, she organized and performed a three-recital concert series at the Yamaha Piano Salon titled Twentieth Century Piano Sonata. Recently, she helped organize the “Requiem and Resurrection” concert in commemoration of the 95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide at the Saint Vartan Armenian Cathedral in New York, where her performance of the Piano Sonata by Khachaturian received a standing ovation and was described as “jaw-dropping. The Armenian Mirror Spectator wrote, “The three-movement Khachaturian Sonata—a rarely performed composition—is a real tour-de-force for the virtuoso pianist. Technically pristine, Ms. Poghosyan brought out the driven qualities of the outer movements, and the heart-rending beauty of the middle section.” Program: Komitas, Khachaturian, Beethoven and more. $80/Armenian buffet, ample parking on street.
