An evening of music inspired by the Art and Folk Music of Eastern Europe, journeying from Poland to the highlands of Armenia, through to Russia. The concert opens with Witold Lutoslawski's "Little Suite", a work based on folk dances and themes from the south of Poland. Then brilliant Armenian violinist Ani Batikian joins the London Phoenix Orchestra, conducted by Levon Parikian, in Aram Khachaturian’s exuberant Violin Concerto, a work inspired by the folk melodies of the medieval Armenian bards called "ashughs" and Caucasian dances.

The orchestra continues with Roland Roberts' homage to the Russian-Armenian marine painter Ivan Aivazovsky in celebration of the 200th anniversary of his birth with the world première of "The Ninth Wave", named after a painting by the artist. The evening is concluded by Maurice Ravel's famous 1922 orchestral arrangement of Modest Mussorgsky's evocative progress through his "Pictures at an Exhibition".

The concert is sponsored by the Tekeyan Cultural Association which promotes British-Armenian arts, music and culture, and affiliated with the Tekeyan Trust, a UK-registered charity.
