Komitas, The Artist and The Martyr

Komitas, The Artist and The Martyr - Serge Momjian *I received a copy from the author/publisher in exchange for my honest, unbiased review*
Thank you!

This is a powerful account of one of Armenian's greatest musical minds, and the tragic life he led. Singing from a very young age, and having felt the pain of loss at a young age, his story is one of both strength and suffering. This book is a brilliant account of Komitas' life, both detailed and thoroughly researched. The author took the time to gather all the facts, and it shows in this book, going from Komitas' birth all the way to death, the story is well told, and a great resource for anyone interested in musical history, or Armenian history, as well as those who enjoy reading of important people, and passionate artists throughout history.
