Notes & Reviews:

Born into a musical family in Yerevan, Armenia, Vardan Mamikonian began his piano studies at the Yerevan Spendiarian School of Music with Arkui Haroutunian. He continued his studies at the Moscow Central Music School and at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Conservatory where he became a student of Valery Kastelsky.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Mamikonian offers a thoughtful rendering with a beautiful range of color. He excels at the introspective, lyrical sections performing with great sensitivity and ardor. He is too flexible with the tempo in these passages. There is an impressive range of expression and character: the fortississimo sections are powerfully deployed and the Grandioso section is majestic yet incredibly controlled. Mamikonian is consciousness of voicing and balance: his runs are clear and precise, while his melodies arch exquisitely. As in the sonata, Mamikonian shows a personal tone in the Valse Oubliee, where even single notes are weighted with immense character.
