Current national anthem of Armenia should change: it is right to restore Aram Khachatryan's anthem
During the last few days, debates over changing the national anthem have been activated again. Basically, the discussions show that our current anthem does not fit the status of Armenia nowadays.
In an interview with HAY DZAYN, People's Artist of the Republic of Armenia, Professor Tovmas Poghosyan touched upon the issue of changing the anthem, noting that in his opinion the Armenian national anthem should be changed. "It would be right to restore Aram Khachatryan's anthem with some edited words".
Composer Daniel Erazhisht (Musician) also agrees to change the anthem, thinking that Aram Khachatryan's anthem should be restored with some edition of the lyrics. "It is necessary to change the lyrics in accordance with our days. The roots of that hymn are deep, they are reaching Nerses Shnorhali. Aram Khachatryan's anthem includes Western Armenia and Eastern Armenia, both past and present, spiritual and secular, there is no other synthesis of all ot once in any other anthem".
It should be noted that the head of the Union of Composers of Armenia Aram Satyan also mentioned that the Union and all the composers favor this change and added that Aram Khachatryan's work is written on a permanent basis and has a spiritual importance for the state.
Let us also add that the criticism of today's anthem has almost always been, at the same time, the anthem was not acceptable simultaneously both for the society and the intelligentsia.
