Ծիրանափող – Tsiranapogh (Duduk)


via A Jug Of Wine, A Loaf Of Bread, And Virtual Thou • armenianhighland: Ծիրանափող  Tsiranapogh (Duduk) ….

armenianhighland:

Internationally known Duduk, It has been called Tsiranapogh by the Armenians since antiquity. The woodwind instrument is indigenous to Armenia, But widely used by many cultures in Eastern Europe, Middle east and parts of Asia.

In 2005, UNESCO proclaimed the Armenian Tsiranapogh music as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

It is thought to be first used in the 1200 BC. According to ethnomusicologist Dr. Jonathan McCollum, the instrument is depicted in numerous Armenian manuscripts of the Middle Age.The word “Tsiranapogh” literally means “apricot horn” and the apricot tree is also known to be indigenous to the Armenian Highland.

Wood is cut from the apricot tree and then left to dry for about 20 – 25 years. The Tsiranapog masters (Vartapets) then with knowledge passed down for centuries, carefully create the Tsiranapogh with great care.

The instrument is widely used in film music composition, in films as Avatar, Harry potter, Gladiator, The Last Temptation of Christ, Game Of Thrones, Xena: Warrior Princess, The Chronicles of Narnia. Also in video games such as God Of War III, Prince Of Persia, Just to name a few.

Intrigued by this piece from a favourite source, I searched Google and the following is one of several duduk performances available…

The Land Never Forgets its People – Ծիրանափող (Tsiranapogh), or դուդուկ (Duduk)

Published on 1 May 2012

musicologists cite evidence of the duduk’s use as early as 1200 BC, though Western scholars suggest it is 1,500 years old. Variants of the duduk can be found in Armenia and the Caucasus. The history of the Armenian duduk music is dated to the reign of the Armenian king Tigran the Great, who reigned from 95–55 B.C.[16] According to ethnomusicologist Dr. Jonathan McCollum, the instrument is depicted in numerous Armenian manuscripts of the Middle Age, and is “actually the only truly Armenian instrument that’s survived through history, and as such is a symbol of Armenian national identity … The most important quality of the duduk is its ability to express the language dialectic and mood of the Armenian language, which is often the most challenging quality to a duduk player

Most comrades in the US will have seen this already.  Although this clip only covers the last few minutes of the eulogy he delivered at Rev Pinkney’s funeral, if you have the time, be sure to check out the entire speech (https://youtu.be/RK7tYOVd0Hs) in which Obama demonstrates again his prowess as an orator unmatched for several decades.  And who knew he can sing?

This amazing lecture series (The unanswered Question ), is actually an interdisciplinary overview about the evolution of Western European classical music from Bach through the 20th century crisis and beyond a bit . Mr. Bernstein uses linguistics namely Chomskian Linguistics to provide a framework to illustrate how music and all the arts evolved toward greater and greater levels of ambiguity/expressivity over history until the 20th century crisis . He manages this impressive feat of popular education , by dividing music into; Phonology (the study of sound); Syntax (the study of structure) and; Semantics (the study of meaning)

Having dug out my MP4 player after too many years, I came across this and realised I’d forgotten how hauntingly beautiful it is…’though this performance is undoubtedly preferable to that on my Walkman.
