"Whether it's the physical or the imaginary desert, some of those who venture into it are lucky. You can perish in the desert because of the exhausting heat, freezing cold or lack of sustenance. But even though it's an adverse place, it's also a meeting point. "
An inexhaustible musical and human concern have led Ara Malikian to venture into his Armenian roots and embrace music from other cultures in the Middle East (Arab and Jewish), Central Europe (gypsy and klezmer), Argentina (tango) and Spain (flamenco), all within a very personal language with the virtuosity and expressiveness of the great European classical tradition.
