“With power and agility to spare, and plenty of attention to inner voicings Hayk Melikyan is never at a loss for style or direction” (Fanfare Magazine). Born and educated in Yerevan, he has won numerous prizes at international competitions including the 2000 Premio Valentino Bucchi Contemporary Music Competition in Rome. He is now internationally recognized as one of the most engaging and imaginative interpreters of works of the 20th and 21st centuries. Hayk Melikyan was awarded the title of Honorary Artist of the Republic of Armenia in 2013 for his celebrated performances throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
