The Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain is exceptionally closed on Thursday 20 June. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you from Friday 21 June, until 8 September for the visit of the exhibition Josef and Anni Albers.

Echoing their mission of intercultural dialogue, the Boghossian Foundation and Plateforme 50 are pleased to bring together four Armenian and Turkish musicians for a tribute concert honouring the Armenian composer and musicologist Komitas.

Driven by the desire to fuse in the world Komitas, the musicians Ardashes Agoshian, Natali Boghossian, Aykut Dursen, and Vardan Hovanissian put their talents at the service of the great composer’s legacy. A visionary musicologist, Komitas recorded 350 Kurdish, 175 Turkish, and nearly 700 Armenian songs throughout his career. The quartet takes us into this heritage repertoire using a double bass, a theorbo, a doudouk and a mezzo-soprano voice as instruments.
