Eduard Hayrapetyan noted that he has already heard all the 8 interpretations of his musical piece. He gave a pride to the fact that each participant regardless of his/her nationality tried to put some uniqueness into this piece integrating personal characteristic, color and esthetic view.
“This is truly an interesting process to me as after another interpretation I face with the fact of increasing richness of my musical piece”.
Let us say that the 2nd round of the competition will start on June 11.
