Re: [ARSCLIST] Komitas

Years ago I believe there was an ARSC presentation on these or, perhaps, on at one of the Etho organizations.

There is a complete Komitas edition publisted by MK in the 1960s. and a lot of bios in Russian.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Komitas

Can anyone give me a little detail about the provenance of the cylinders made by Komitas in Paris in 1912? Mainly what I'd like to know if these were made available commerically as cylinders or were recorded privately and belong to a collection. The Traditional Crossroads CD release is unclear on the matter - they just identify the recordings as "cylinders."
