Martoun Israelyan

Martoun Israelyan was born in 1938 in Gyumri, Armenia, and completed his initial studies in composition and musicology at the Gyumri Musical College in 1964. Upon graduation, he entered the Yerevan State Komitas Conservatory, studying composition with Professor Grigor Yegiazaryan. His musical models during this period were Bartok, Hindemith, and Stravinsky, each of whom demonstrated to the composer the ability to balance static and dynamic musical elements. Soon, though, he came under the influence of the younger generation of modern composers, Boulez, Stockhausen, and Xenakis - for example writing a fully serialist work, Contrasts, for orchestra (1967). After completing his studies at the Komitas Conservatory, Mr. Israelyan took a teaching position at the Yerevan Music College, and then in 1986 became a Professor of Composition at the Yerevan State Komitas Conservatory, a position he maintains to this day. His output consists primarily of chamber and orchestral works - where he often demonstrates his knowledge and indebtedness to the Armenian symphonic tradition.
