Composer's Note: This suite, for soprano (coloratura) and piano, is the first one I composed in Armenia before moving to Canada in 1972. Almost a decade later (in 1981), I composed two other vocal suites in Montreal. At the time this suite was composed, Armenian poet Paruyr Sevak was a very popular intellectual personality, and his innovative, revolutionary poetry was well familiar to anyone living in Armenia. In this lyrical suite marked with numerous emotional moments, I have focused on three of Sevak’s short works with love themes..
