Triptych is a piece inspired by the cultural significance of religion within the Armenian identity. Recorded in Prague and performed by the Prague String Orchestra, “Triptych” pays homage to this religious connection through music, he explains. The performance was conducted by Afonso Teles along with Jasper and recorded in Nov. 2019.
The term “Triptych” (from Greek adjective “triptukhon” or “three-fold”) is most commonly associated with religious works of art on three panels, which are often used as altarpieces in cathedrals and churches. The form, which arises from early Christian art, became a common standard arrangement for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards and has even migrated and been used in other religions, such as Buddhism and Islam. The term, however, can be applied to any medium that fits the narrative—in this case, it has been adopted in musical form.
Consisting of three movements with separate settings, Triptych is a piece with deep thematic undertones and religious meaning.
