  • Dan Yessian’s ‘An Armenian Trilogy’ to premiere at Macomb Center | Public Radio of Armenia
    29 Yessian was born and raised in America But like many children of his generation whose grandparents immigrated from Armenia to the United States he grew up hearing the tragic stories that survived the genocide in Armenia where 1 5 million Armenian citizens were murdered by the Turkish Ottoman Empire in 1915 My grandmother used to talk about how she carried raw meat hidden under her breasts to feed her children said Yessian The pregnant women were gutted Unborn fetuses were removed and tossed into the air Yessian said in his composer notes Others were raped in front of their husbands and children This was a cleansing not unlike the Jewish Holocaust When asked by the Rev Garabed Kochakian of St John Armenian Church in Southfield to consider writing a commemorative piece of music evocative of those dark times he did not hesitate For the past 43 years our company Yessian Music has been creating original music for national television commercials movie trailers and theme parks across the world said Yessian whose sons Brian and Michael also work for the company This was a different kind of opportunity and a challenge I couldn t resist retelling the story of my ancestors in the way I do best through music Audiences at the Macomb Center will hear three movements written for violin and piano Performed by Korean violinist Sonia Lee and pianist Shawn McDonald each movement represents the years surrounding the genocide in Armenia From the days of freedom when Armenians enjoyed the rewards of their work and loving family along with the usual struggles of life to the fear of being marched to their death in the desert and the final movement of faith for a brighter future ahead When I write music I think in very visual ways with the intent that the listener might see what I see and feel what I feel said Yessian whose company produced the music for national commercials like the iconic Think Ford First or promos for television shows like The Blacklist Sunday Night Football and The Voice And so it goes without saying that An Armenian Trilogy is my desire for you to share this journey with me from a musical yet cinematic perspective What follows the movement which Yessian will eventually score for an orchestra is a multi media concert by Michelle Andonian that showcases photographs of the period and the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings performing a new score by Alexandra du Bois In the end I m hopeful aside from enjoying the music it will be an informative cultural experience Yessiam said Comments Recent News Russia may cancel important projects with Turkey Medvedev 14 35 25 Nov 2015 Shark drones to patrol stretch of Australia s coast 13 56 25 Nov 2015 350th anniversary of first printed Armenian Bible Ayvazovski s 200th birthday put on UNESCO calendar 13 53 25 Nov 2015 Russian Cruiser Moskva will cover air groups in Syria with fort air defense 13 20 25 Nov
