From the Pen of Mae Clair

I have a special guest on my blog today, pianist Mihran Kalaydjian. I’ve been following “Mino’s” blog for some time, astounded by the beauty of his compositions and performances. He recently did an interview with his manager, Amanda Baruch, which I’m delighted to share with you today. Please welcome Amanda and Mino for this special interview. And be sure to check out Mino’s links at the bottom. His performances are inspirational!


Concert pianist, Mihran KalaydjianMihran Kalaydjian “Mino “is a special breed and I mean that in the most complimentary sense of the phrase. He has it all – the whole package of artistic gifts – and in abundance. But, what strikes me about his playing is the sheer beauty – the concept, the intelligence, the control over every sound, the vision, the phenomenal listening to it all – all the attributes that comprise great artistry of the sort that touches…
