President Armen Sarkissian sent a letter of condolences on the death of legendary duduk player, People's Artist Jivan Gasparyan.
"I learned with deep sorrow about the death of Armenian duduk legend, People's Artist Jivan Gasparyan.
His art and the emotional melodies flowing from the depths of the soul, had long crossed all the boundaries of reality and the line of eternity.
With the unique mastery of his magic flute, Jivan Gasparyan brought our folk music to the world stages and cinema, for decades making our national culture accessible and understandable to foreign audiences as well.
The great duduk master was one of the pillars of our modern culture, whose name is associated with the creative and working activities of musicians, especially a whole generation of duduk players.
I offer my condolences to Jivan Gasparyan's family, relatives, friends, and the fans of his art in our country and abroad; I share everyone's grief."
