Melik Mavisakalian

Composer

A talanted composer who created almost in all music genres, including jazz, requiring a good music taste and temperament.

He concretely and laconically expressed his ideas in the sonata for violin and organ. In his “Non-stopping bell tower” on the poem after Parujr Sevak one can feel the pain for the loss of the Great Komitas.

He was born in 1937 in Yerevan. In 1961 he graduated from the Yerevan Conservatory, the class of violin after E. Smbatian, and in 1962 - the class of compositions after E. Mirzoian.
