During the press – conference devoted to Armenia Culture Days, prominent opera singer Lyubov Kazarnovskaya noted that Armenian culture is very close to her soul. She said she’s deeply connected with Armenia and wonderful Armenian culture.
“I really love this country and I believe this love is reciprocal,” said Lyubov Kazarnovskaya.
The Maltese Philharmonic Orchestra, under the conduction of Sergey Smbatyan, performed Aram Khachatryan’s Violin Concerto (soloist Ayman Musahajayeva, laureate of many international competitions), “Masquerade” suite and parts from “Spartacus” ballet.
