Song of peace (10th)
To professor Zaven
Yedigharians, father & lord of SOL
watch darkness with open eyes; a leaden
sky. People are searching for peace in
all open and slightly open windows. At
the same time, devil is searching the
convulsion and imposes the culture of
anarchy, but we still talk about
existence has been put on fire but the humanity
still sings the song of peace. It's difficult to
believe, but the great culture of love doesn't
teach other than friendship & peace, just like
the song of angles in Mendelssohn's music which
isn't but the celestial sound of freedom,
tranquility & peace.
seeking happy days and joy. We are finding
happiness in the pure laughter of the innocent.
It has been a long time since loyal friends have
gone. Some of them, far and some not so far, but
not so close either. They are reviewing their
life to find, maybe, an excuse for being &
midst of these different trips, suddenly we are
faced with the eternal trip of an old wise
devotee of music. Since my childhood, he has
been one of the messengers who invited all to
wisdom, meaning & self-knowing. He taught
everyone the song of peace in the divine feast
of music. He was the master of love. He knew
love like his fathers. He preached only love and
wanted to create empathy & brotherhood amongst
the mankind. Realizing his death annoys me &
gradually creates an overwhelming emptiness in
my life that can hardly be expressed; a sad and
He is gone
and sleeps in eternal peace but there's no rest
to our journey; music. So, we dedicate ?song of
peace? to our friends, though we are aware of
our human shortcomings. Music is neither the old
false belief that the strangers have presented,
nor a tool to escape from thinking. Music is a
deep way of thinking. Music is a word full of
symbols. In each note lies a meaning and in each
sentence a secret of existence. A peace of mind
to think and a solid will for edification of
beneficence, purity & peace. No doubt that to
reach this goal we need asceticism and practice.
are calm and they humbly accept difficulties and
hope that the earth hears their song of peace.
Music reveals all faults of our thought and
invites us to reflect, and while it is
celebrating all benefices, it prohibits us from
evil and turns us back to our roots.
remains & music shines because it drinks from
the best spring source. Let's wish we search
eternity in immortal sounds & attitudes of great
men before it's too late.
Ten years of efforts in SOL MUSIC ENSEMBLE,
resulting in ten albums, various concerts &
different trips for music, sometimes may look
exhausting but when there is passion & support,
tiredness has no meaning.
of passing through the ocean of music literature
with loyal friends of SOL, means that we are
members of one family loving each other.
we thank all who think, understand & increase
their patience to find the meaning of the
existence and like this, they help the human
being to come back to his roots, being the
We humbly present the results of our suffering &
joy in order that no sound remains unheard.
