Zwei Musikwissenschaftler über Avet Terterian

David Fanning schrieb in einer Übersicht über sowjetische symphonische Musik:

Armenia is represented by the elegantly post-Honeggerian “Symphony for strings and timpani” by Edvard Mirzoyan (ASV); stronger representatives would be the brutalist symphonies of Mirzoyan’s pupil Avet Terteryan.

Das erscheint uns ein gewagtes Urteil: brutalistische Symphonien….
und auf schreibt Rob Barnett:

Hovhaness was way ahead of the mystic fashions of the 1960s and 1970s: hippiedom, TM, Indian mysticism (The Beatles visiting Maharishi Mahesh Yogi). The ethnic sound has become very popular these days so it is difficult to know why Hovhaness has not made more progress. You need only look at the rising reputation of Avet Terteryan (ASV and BMG Melodiya), whose regionally accented music is so distinctive, to wonder what has happened.

Ja, das ist wahr, Terterians Musik gewinnt mehr und mehr Ansehen!
