“I’m glad to be in Armenia, in the country of my grandfather”. – Michel Legrand

Before a performance the Armenian-French composer, pianist, conductor and singer who has won three Oscars (out of 13 nominations), five Grammys, and has been nominated for an Emmy, told about his Armenian roots.
“I’m always overwhelmed with emotions when I visit Armenia. I have been always connected with Armenia as my grandfather Sargis Ter-Grigoryan. I was 10 years old when he died. He was playing a “saz” (oriental musical instrument) and for us music was everything. I’m happy to be in Armenia in the country of my grandfather, in this wonderful country. I’m happy to be with you this evening”. – said Michel Legrand
All the audience applauded world famous musician.
